After officially announcing the end of its deployment of the new Maps maps in the United States, Apple is now looking at Europe.
“The completion of the new maps in the United States and the implementation of new features such as Look Around and Collections are important steps to realize this vision. We look forward to spreading the word to the rest of the world, starting with Europe later this year. ”, says Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of services.
Apple says the new Maps map design provides users with faster and more precise navigation, improved details, better road coverage and more. This work is the result of a start from scratch, as the firm had announced more than a year ago now. Eddy Cue goes on to say that:
“It is an effort in which we are deeply invested and in which we have to recreate the map from scratch in order to re-imagine how maps improve people’s lives – with the route to work or school or planning important vacation – all with privacy ”.
In addition to the additional details and the new design, the revised version of Apple’s Plans also contains a handful of new features. for example Look Around which offers a street level view with high resolution 3D photography, etc. Look Around is available in New York, San Francisco Bay, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston and Oahu. In addition, Apple adds that many more places will arrive over time.
