Apple Maps is one of the best mapping services on the market. Apple has been improving its Apple Maps since the launch day to take on Google Maps. In reality, Apple Maps was once a disaster when it tried to replace Google Maps on Apple devices. Apple Maps is better now, but Apple’s mapping service still lacks a lot of important features.
Fortunately, we no longer live in those days. Apple Maps is finally at a point where we can ignore Google Maps. However, there is still something missing that prevents Apple Maps from getting the perfect score. In fact, there are times when Apple Maps crashes or shows wrong streets.
Apple does not want to get left behind Google Maps on the market. Therefore, the company is still improving it. According to Apple, the company has decided to rebuild the app, offering a more comprehensive experience for users worldwide. Apple claims that its mapping service will use the company’s mapping data, eliminating the need to use third-party data.
Apple says that the company will start collecting mapping data in a wide range of cities in the US this year. Apple’s move aims to provide a more accurate mapping data for iPhone or iPad owners. Tech experts say that Apple is working on a feature called Street View. In reality, Street View is not something new out there as it has been part of Google Maps for years.
Tech experts say that Apple will use its own vans to collect mapping data for Apple Maps, just like what Google has been doing for years. This method allows for the more accurate presentation of landmarks and streets, something Apple Maps is falling behind Google Maps.
According to Apple, the company has been trying to create the best mapping service in the world. Tech experts say that Apple is working on taking Apple Maps to a whole new level and turn it into a selling point of Apple devices.
Apple has been slowly expanding transit data to more cities worldwide. Apple Maps transit data allows users to quickly navigate cities with the public transport system. Apple is expected to bring the feature to more markets this year.
