Apple’s Maps service is still a sore spot for the company for many users, but the Cupertino-based company is working hard to improve the service. That’s where the new Maps Connect comes in.
On June 27, Apple added places like Tokyo, Zion National Park and others to their 3D Flyover feature within the Maps app. That updated came after another in March of the same year that added several new places. And now, Apple’s added another batch of cities to the mix.
Nokia released an iOS app for its HERE mapping service back in 2012, but pulled it from the App Store a year later as the maps were quite slow and buggy.
It was widely speculated that Apple would announce major improvements to the Maps app in iOS 8 such as improved points-of-interest data, public transit directions in select cities, augmented reality and indoor mapping at last week’s WWDC Keynote event, so we were quite puzzled when the company did not announce any of these much-needed improvements.
