Apple today announced that redesigned Apple maps have now rolled out to all users in the US in its official Maps app. The company first announced plans to update its maps in June 2018, and the update was mostly complete, and last month it started rolling out entirely to parts of south-east US. Apple also has said that the new maps will launch for users across Europe “in the coming months.”
The new maps have much more information than ever before and give you a better overview of highways, homes, parks, and more. Here is an Apple GIF that reveals the variations between its old maps and the new ones.
Over the past year and a half, the redesign was slowly appearing in bits and pieces across the US. In a statement, Apple’s senior vice president of internet software and services, Eddy Cue, said the company is planning to bring the maps to the rest of the world. Still, Cue hasn’t provided a timeline for when that could happen beyond reiterating that they will come to Europe later this year.
