Apple Maps –  a poor launch, will be rebuilt by next year:- Today, Apple announced that they will rebuild the Maps. The new Maps will sport high-resolution maps with satellite images, ground to street level. In a detailed blog, TechCrunch posted about the entire changes. Starting from iOS 12 beta next week, the new Maps will start unfolding its new view, not at once though.

Apple Maps will be rebuilt from scratch, says Apple

Apple Maps was a pure disaster when launched. It is not detailed as Google Maps. You will not find the detailed information, like Google Maps,  provide you. TechCrunch’s Matthew Panzarino, in his blog, says that Apple will switch from third-party providers. Instead, it will switch to its own maps services. Further, he adds that Apple Maps will detail every single thing present on earth, be it pedestrian walk.

Panzarino spoke to the overseer of Apple Maps, also the senior vice president of Apple,  Eddy Cue.

In his interview, Cue says:

Since we introduced this six years ago — we won’t rehash all the issues we’ve had when we introduced it — we’ve done a huge investment in getting the map up to par,” said Cue. “When we launched, a lot of it was all about directions and getting to a certain place. Finding the place and getting directions to that place. We’ve done a huge investment of making millions of changes, adding millions of locations, updating the map and changing the map more frequently. All of those things over the past six years.

Further, he adds that the app will be of next level when it will launch.

We wanted to take this to the next level,” says Cue. “We have been working on trying to create what we hope is going to be the best map app in the world, taking it to the next step. That is building all of our own map data from the ground up.

Further, Cue says that they haven’t announced about it yet. What the update will bring, nobody knows. One of the secret that Apple is currently holding under its sleeves. Just Like NASA with Area 51! Next year when the update will roll out, it will be done in sections, adds Cue. The improvement team will be a global data based.
