Apple Maps turns 10-Surely its getting there
You can see the Brooklyn Bridge in Apple Maps if you have an iPhone. The three-dimensional image displays its sprawl across the East River, perched above a road on the fringes of Manhattan, and towering over its namesake park at the tip of Brooklyn. By turning on Apple’s Flyover tour, you can see into the nearby pavilion, across the East River, and at the trees on Liberty Island as the camera slowly circles the bridge from a satellite perspective on a bright, sunny day.
“At Apple, we strive to provide top-notch goods that offer our customers the best experience possible. With the release of our updated Maps last week, we failed to live up to this promise. We deeply regret any inconvenience this may have caused our consumers, and we are making every effort to make Maps better,” Cook wrote.
One of many, to put it nicely, curiosities from the introduction of Apple Maps, a product that will commemorate its tenth birthday later this month, was the liquid Brooklyn Bridge. The app had one of the most difficult beginnings of any Apple product in recent memory, but the company has put enough effort into it to make it an excellent mapping programme and a legitimate alternative to Google Maps.
Apple Maps emerged due to a disagreement between Apple and Google. Although it may be tough to remember in the present, the two companies were cordial back when the iPhone first came out. When the iPhone was first introduced, Eric Schmidt, the CEO of Google at the time, was a member of Apple’s board of directors, and Google Maps and YouTube were two of the few apps that came preloaded on every iPhone.
