Thread: Apple Replaces Google Maps With Apple's Own Maps in Find My iPhone iCloud Web App

    Default Apple Replaces Google Maps With Apple's Own Maps in Find My iPhone iCloud Web App


    According to numerous reports, Apple is rolling out support for its own maps service in the Web application version of its Find My iPhone service on the iCloud Web site. Apple previously used Google Maps for this service, which allows you to see all of your devices current and most recent locations on a map.

    With iOS 6, Apple replaced Google Maps as the default mapping solution with a Maps application solution of their very own, and it soon followed on Mac OS X. This move to iCloud.com shows that Apple is ready to abandon Google Maps completely as their own Maps continue to grow in popularity.

    Apple's Maps had a bad reputation when they were first released for leading people where they didn't intend to go, but Apple has been working hard with their mapping team to improve Maps reliability and usability. Google Maps is still offered as a free download in the App Store as an alternative for anybody that still prefers the competing service.

    The iCloud Web site doesn't appear to be showing Apple's Maps for everybody just yet, but it will in due time.

    Meh, it's much better than it was when first introduced. I've found some addresses that Apple's maps locates better than Google's.
