Obviously developing from the ground up would be virtually impossible, so Apple has partnered with several major firms, most notably Tom Tom, to use its maps data.
On the surface, Apple’s maps is quite similar to Google’s.
However, the maps feel cleaner, and easier to follow than Google’s, which often seem to cram too much information on.
The satnav implementation is also slick, while the 3D buildings look particularly impressive - although admittedly they are little more than a gimmick for most people.
However, there is one big omission for commuters - transport directions.
Currently Apple points people towards third party apps for these, but it is something the firm will need to address in the future to compete with Google.
Standard 2D maps had a clean feel to them - and we found coverage excellent
3D Maps are impressive, but only major cities are currently covered
iOS also now has a built in satnav feature, which is clean and well thought out
