Get Street View On iOS 6 Maps Using The Street View App

Get Street View On iOS 6 Maps Using The Street View App

Apple’s own Maps app for iOS devices hasn’t exactly been a success. Whereas it lacks many features, one of the critical deficiencies is the lack of any alternatives to the popular ‘Street View’ feature in Google Maps. An iOS developer has now devised a clever way of accessing the Street View features directly from within the iOS 6 Maps app.

Apple May Not Approve A Google Maps Apps

Apple May Not Approve A Google Maps Apps

When Apple released iOS 6 with its own Maps and essentially eradicated Google Maps from the new iteration, it was a major disaster. The new Maps were no good as they lacked some of the most basic features. Consequently, Apple had to issue apologies and direct iPhone users to use viable alternatives. Nonetheless, Apple may still refuse to accept a Google Maps app whenever it is released.

Survey Indicates Apple Maps Issues Aren’t A Huge Ordeal

Survey Indicates Apple Maps Issues Aren’t A Huge Ordeal

If you thought Apple Maps were horrible, think again, a survey taken in September proves that Apple’s new mapping application isn’t all too bad. I’ve used Apple Maps to travel an exceptional five-hundred miles and not once was I brought off track due to a misplaced street or blurry graphic. ChangeWave, a market researching firm, released data following their 4,270 consumer survey to comfort my point.

Apple Maps Allows Users To Cache Large Areas For Offline Viewing

Apple Maps Allows Users To Cache Large Areas For Offline Viewing

Apple Maps in iOS 6 allows users to cache a much larger area for offline viewing than Google Maps. Apple Maps allows users to view any location around a 740 mile radius (1200 km) from cache when a data connection is lost. Google Maps provided viewing of areas in just a 10 mile radius. While traveling, many users commonly experience some-sort of internet outage, and with this type of offline viewing radius, users will be able to continue their trip for miles.

Apple Hiring Ex-Google Maps Personnel To Work On Its Maps

When Apple replaced Google Maps with its own Maps in iOS 6, many called it an unwise decision. And since the release of iOS 6, this has proved quite true. iOS users all around the globe are lambasting Apple for having dished out a very poor mapping service in place of Google Maps. Apparently taking a lesson from it, Apple is now aggressively hiring ex-Google employees to work on its Maps.

iOS 6 Beta 3 Released By Apple, Contains New Settings For Maps

iOS 6 Beta 3 Released By Apple, Contains New Settings For Maps

It’s been only three weeks since Apple released the last beta build of iOS 6. However, it seems that Apple wants to pack a whole lot of features into it quickly. Apple probably wants its developers to test out the new features well enough before they are rolled out to all Apple users. That’s why, the company has released the third beta build of iOS 6 for the developers pretty quickly.

As had been long expected of Apple, the company has finally launched its Maps in iOS 6. The analysts had pegged this move at Apple’s attempt to distance itself from the regular Google Maps and from the excellent features that are a part of Apple’s Maps, it seems that Apple will successfully bag users of Google Maps on iOS.

Apple’s New Moves Will Reduce Google’s Revenue

Apple’s New Moves Will Reduce Google’s Revenue

It seems that the relationship between two tech giants, Apple and Google, have been deteriorating recently. Specifically, ever since the launch of Android, both are seen somewhat as rivals. And this rivalry is about to get serious as Apple gears up to launch a mapping service of its own for iOS devices. This would be a huge step towards divorcing Google Maps from iOS.
