Apple has finally pushed its redesigned maps for all everyone residing in the US. At first, the company announced plans to redesign its maps in June 2018, and the redesign was effectively complete and first began rolling out in full to parts of the southeastern US last month. Apple also says the new maps will arrive for users across Europe in the coming months.
The newly designed maps came with more detail than you have ever seen in the Maps app by Apple. It now gives you a better view of roads, buildings, parks, and more. Apple said the redesigned “Maps” program is fast, accurate, and comprehensive, even weaving in transit options in some locations.
This redesigned app has started appearing slowly in bits and pieces across the US over the past year and a half. In a statement, Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of internet software and services, said the company plans to bring the maps to the rest of the world, but Eddy didn’t mention any timeline for when this change will appear in Europe.
Since first introducing its own maps in 2012 with a very buggy launch, Apple has continued to add features to try to compete against the giant that is Google Maps. In iOS 13, Apple introduced Look Around, its own version of Google Maps’ Street View, but like with the redesigned maps, that’s still rolling out and is currently only available in New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston, and Oahu.
