Apple switches Google Maps to Apple Maps on iCloud


Apple, after so many years depending on Google Maps for key apps on iOS and OS X, slowly shifting its base towards Apple’s ecosystem by completely freeing itself from Google’s navigation service. Latest advancement in this direction is replacement of Google Maps with Apple Maps on iCloud.

Apple, earlier this year has briefly rolled out Apple Maps to the beta participants, but now it appears that it has extended it as the full version to the service. Google Maps can be found still in use for some retail store listings on the Apple’s main website, but it also would be gone away in few months in favor of Apple Maps.

This isn’t a surprise move, since Apple had already shaking Google’s position by removing Google Maps and YouTube as default apps from iOS 6 and now continues with web rollout of Apple Maps. Apple Maps has come long way since its 2012 release, which was infested with bugs, improperly placed landmarks and poor directions.

But things have got better since then and later last year iPhone maker’s improvements to the Apple Maps for iOS and helped it to grasp 80% of Google Maps former iOS traffic. It is reported that, last month Apple Maps was generating more traffic than Google Maps on the London network.

Meanwhile, is nothing worth that domain redirects to the iOS maps section on the Apple’s official site. Besides this, the company was looking for developers to “develop, design and maintain complex front end code for new project”. Since this project included web platform as well, it generated the wave of opinion which Apple may be bringing Maps to its web service.
