Comparing Different Map apps

Apple Maps in CarPlay showing which highway lane to be in
Apple Watch displaying upcoming turn for Apple Maps
Apple Maps in CarPlay – compare to Google Maps
Google Maps in CarPlay – compare to Apple Maps
Apple Maps allows you to report incidents similarly as Google Maps and Waze. There are not quite as many selections compared to the other two.
This is how incident reporting looks in Waze.
This is a cool feature unique to Waze where it will show you when you’re speeding.
Screenshot
Calendars5 by Readdle lets you choose which default map app you want to use for driving directions.
When you ask Siri to take a screenshot, you’ll get two – one from CarPlay and the other from your locked iPhone. This results in a black image. When viewing in your Photos app, be sure to delete all the black images.

Setup for Passkey to Autofill

If your credential manager uses vaults, decide how you will implement using a Private Vault vs regular Vaults set to be shared vs the Shared Vault in your own use case scenarios.

Configure iOS, macOS, and browser settings for autofilling passkeys from 1Password and not iCloud or browser autofill. Pick one or the other to prevent conflict.

You only need to see one passkey in your credential manager. It’s in the account where you might see multiple passkeys set up for different devices. It’s up to the service as to whether or not they will let you revoke or rename a passkey and you might have to dig through many settings to discover where they keep passkey management. Amazon, for example, wasn’t very intuitive.

Passkey Directories

Just because a product or service is listed in the directory does not mean there is a passkey system set up yet. It only means there are plans to implement it in the future.
