After lots of iPhone 5 rumors, and a surprising amount of leaks leading up to the event, Apple unveiled their new Maps application which will replace the current solution, Google Maps, which has been used since 2007.
Instead, Apple is using their own in-house mapping solution, which they’ve done from the ground up.
Making an appearance in the new Maps application are turn-by-turn directions, a feature that Android has had for some time now and has been available to iPhone users through third party apps on the AppStore. The directions also work with Siri. Apple Maps also have a free crowd-sourced traffic service, Yelp integration, and 3D mapping like Google Earth called “Flyover”. Local search already has 100 million business listings around the world. Check out more pictures below, courtesy of MacRumors.
