Apple completes its roll out of the redesigned Maps app

Users who update will see a visually improved map across the United States straight away. So, what do you think of the redesigned Apple Maps?

Given these upgrades mostly serve to bring Apple Maps' features in line with what's on offer from Google Maps, they feel like necessary upgrades more than exciting new features.

Apple also noted that it has expanded support for Look Around, Apple's answer to Google Street View.

One of the most popular and useful apps of all time is Google Maps. However, the feature is limited to the San Francisco Bay Area, Washington D.C., New York, Los Angeles, and Miami for now.

For those in Europe, just be patient since the improved update will roll out within this year as per Apple.

Now that Apple has completed its redesigned Maps interface rollout in the U.S, the company aims to achieve the same in Europe in the coming months.

Some of the service most important features are Look Around for exploring cities; Collections for building and sharing lists of favorite restaurants, places end-users want to visit or top sites for their next big vacation, as well as Favorites for getting an easy navigation to the places end-users visit every day.

"We set out to make the very best and most personal maps program on Earth that's reflective of how folks explore the world these days", said Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, in a statement concerning the launching. Undeniably, most of the features listed are already present and available globally on its competitor, Google Maps.

There's a lot more to Google Maps than people realize. It's also worth noting that the app now includes indoor maps for airports and malls, along with an option to send an ETA to family or friends. This update also benefits the United States users more than anywhere else. These favorited destinations will appear on the Apple Maps launch screen where they can be quickly tapped for immediate routes.

Apple also uses a process called "fuzzing" that converts a precise location where a Maps search originated in a less precise location after 24 hours.

Apple Maps, now utilized in over 200 nations, can be found on iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and in automobiles through CarPlay.
