In early December 2019, Apple started testing a revamped and expanded version of Apple Maps app in the Central and Southeastern parts and in the Alaska of the United States. And now, the tech giant started rolling out the revamped Apple Maps to all the users.
The revamped Maps app features more extensive geographical details, with updated buildings, roads, parks, sports fields, parking lots, foliage, pools, pedestrian pathways, and bodies of water.
The thing which is most interesting about that is to get its mapping data, Apple uses its own vehicles equipped with LIDAR sensors and cameras. Apple has been using this method to collect mapping information for years now.
Apple started rolling out this updated mapping app to customers starting in iOS 12. At the 2019 Worldwide Developer Conference, Apple said all customers in the United States would receive the improved Maps app by the end of the year. And now, keeping its promise the company has started rolling out the update Apple Maps. It could still take some time for all users in the Central and Southeastern areas of the U.S. to see the new content.
Apple is also planning to bring the new Maps app to additional countries in 2020. Apart from this, there are many more things that Apple will bring or update in the coming year.
