Apple delivers a new redesigned Maps with better road coverage and more precise addresses.
Apple has announced in its blog post yesterday that it has redesigned maps for all users in the United States with faster and more accurate navigation, better road coverage, precise address, comprehensive views of roads, buildings, parks, airports, malls and more, making it easier and more enjoyable to map out any journey.
Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue, said, “We set out to create the best and most private maps app on the planet that is reflective of how people explore the world today.”
“It is an effort we are deeply invested in and required that we rebuild the map from the ground up to reimagine how Maps enhances people’s lives — from navigating to work or school or planning an important vacation — all with privacy at its core. The completion of the new map in the United States and delivering new features like Look Around and Collections are important steps in bringing that vision to life. We look forward to bringing this new map to the rest of the world starting with Europe later this year,” added Eddy Cue.
Maps helps hundreds of millions of people in over 200 countries and territories navigate and explore the world. It’s everywhere customers are: at home, in the office, on the go on users’ iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple Watch, and in the car with CarPlay.
Privacy is central to the Maps experience, offering personalized features created using on-device intelligence. Maps is deeply integrated into the most popular apps customers use every day, including Photos, Messages, Calendar, Weather and more. With MapKit and MapKit JS, Maps is also the foundation for many popular third-party apps and services like Instagram, Bank of America and Nike Run Club.
Apple completed the rollout of this new Maps experience in the United States and will begin rolling it out across Europe in the coming months.
