Apple continues to steadily improve its Mapping service. The company today expanded Maps 3D Flyover coverage to Tokyo, Japan andÂ Zion National Park in Utah.
It was widely speculated that Apple wouldÂ announceÂ major improvements to the Maps app in iOS 8Â such asÂ improved points-of-interest data, public transit directions in select cities, augmented reality and indoor mapping at last week’s WWDC Keynote event, soÂ we were quite puzzled when the companyÂ did not announce any of these much-needed improvements.
Apple is rumored to be planning big changes for its Maps iOS app in iOS 8, including improvements to quality of data and transit integration. Another area Apple has expressed interest in is indoor location, and the company has taken another step forward in this direction by hiring Philip Stanger,Â the CEOÂ of indoor positioning startup Wifarer.
Some users are reporting that they’re seeing an option inÂ Apple MapsÂ on their iOS devices which allows them to be notified whenever they report a problem. This is reportedly visible to only a few users as of now which means that the feature is still in testing.
