Spotted by Nate Thompson on Twitter, Apple Maps has started rolling out an update that brings up-to-date coverage to the central and southeastern United States. The update includes more details on roads, bike paths, walking trails, parking lots, buildings, parks, swimming pools and water bodies.
Like the Midwest update that took place in October, the expansion in the southeast seems to be happening at different times on different platforms.
This concludes Apple’s deployment of improved Maps data. Apple had promised that all of the U.S. would get the data by the end of 2019.
It was recently revealed that Apple had spent “billions” on revising Apple Maps, after a less than stellar launch of Maps in 2012. The information was released as part of Apple’s antitrust investigation, although an exact amount of money spent was never reported.
Apple Maps has undergone major changes, and the arrival of iOS 13 has brought “Look Around” – Apple’s rival to Google’s Street View – to the iPhone.
