Apple Ready to Launch New Generation Apple Maps Features for More Users, Apple is working around the clock to create a better Google Maps competitor, and while the company’s efforts aren’t yielding results at the rate customers want, there’s no denying that Apple Maps is improving.
The addition of 3D navigation is arguably one of the most significant advancements in recent memory since it makes it easier for drivers to figure out where they are.
Furthermore, such an upgrade entirely revamps the navigation experience, while it is still limited to iPhone users and users in specified countries.
Apple is currently tackling the latter, with availability gradually but steadily increasing to new places throughout the globe.
A fresh collection of 3D models was just released in Spain, with Madrid and maybe Barcelona getting the new city experience sooner rather than later.
Of course, Apple has been tight-lipped about everything thus far, but we can all expect an announcement in the coming weeks.
In other news, the Cupertino-based iPhone maker has expanded cycling directions assistance to additional states in the United States, as well as delivering navigation upgrades for customers in Brazil, including toll information.
Without a sure, Apple Maps is improving, and at first sight, it appears like the parent business is working on a number of fronts to create a more advanced Google Maps competitor.
In the meantime, Google Maps is getting a slew of updates, some of which were inspired by Apple’s competitor. Google Maps was upgraded earlier this month to include support for the traffic light and stop sign information, which was first included in Apple Maps a long time ago.
Given Apple’s glacial release schedule, the functionality isn’t yet available to everyone, so there’s a high chance Google’s upgrade will reach widespread availability before Apple’s worldwide deployment is completed.
