Maps provides traffic information, but doesn't re-route bases on trafffic. Only if you make a turn or otherwise alter the route you are taking. That will occur even if the screen is locked.

If you want traffic rerouting check out Waze

I agree. Apple maps uses Waze traffic data. Waze shows much more information than apple maps does and is free.

If what you say is true, why does Apple's website say this?:
... And if traffic’s a mess, Maps offers alternative routes to save you time.
With a picture of a reroute prompt? (Half way down the page)

I stand corrected. The question is what is the trigger for a re-route alert.

I have never received a reroute either. Perhaps I'm always on the best/fastest route even in traffic.

Not sure either. Even giant traffic jams ahead don't trigger for a re-route
