Apple Maps

Now you can find your way with Apple Maps, usually.

Once upon a time, Google Maps was the go to maps provider for Apple’s iOS. That was until iOS 6 in 2012, when it was announced that Apple was creating its own mapping service to replace Google Maps. When it was first released, there were a plethora of bugs with the Apple Maps service and many users reverted back to Google Maps.

Today it’s hard to say which app is the better approach to pathfinding. They’re different and it seems to depend on the country you are using them in.

I personally see Google Maps in the pole position when using one of the apps in Thailand, my country of residence.

Just one example:

Wat Phra That Phanom is the sacred precinct of the Phra That Phanom chedi, located in the district of the same name, in the southern part of Nakhon Phanom Province, northeastern Thailand. According to legend, this structure contains the Buddha’s breastbone, and as such, it is one of the most important Theravada Buddhist structures in the country.

You can easily find it in Google Maps but Apple Maps not even shows you any search results.
