The One Reason Why You Should Use Apple Maps On Your iPhone

October 28, 2016 by Sara Alderman
shefinds | Style

Apple Maps was a joke when it first launched. The mapping directions were inaccurate, which, like, that is the whole point of this app, and it didn’t measure up with competitors who had more user-friendly interfaces. Cue Google Maps becoming the default map app for basically everyone.

However, six years later, Apple Maps finally has a leg up on Google Maps and Waze. The iOS 10 update introduced a face-lift for Apple Maps. It has a new design, with the ability to zoom further ahead on the map during navigation, and promises to be “smarter” by suggesting places where users can get basics, like gas and coffee, en route. While this is all well and good, it doesn’t necessarily put Apple Maps at the top of the map apps.

What does set Apple Maps apart, and may finally give you a reason to ditch Google Maps for good, is that you now have the ability to use Apple Maps in connection with other apps. Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, explained at this year’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, “I can find a restaurant, I can book a reservation (via OpenTable), request a car (via Uber), I can pay for it (via Apple Pay), and I can see when it will arrive, all without leaving the Map app.” Now that’s a good update! Being able to use multiple apps to get sh*t done in one place. Your move, Google Maps.
