9to5Mac recently heard some news that we all knew was coming, Apple will be dropping the Google Maps from iOS 6 in trade for a new Maps app which has been designed by Apple themselves, the app will apparently be available on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch and will reportedly be a lot cleaner, faster and reliable.
This would all be thanks to their most recent purchases of Placebase, C3 Technologies and Polyo, allowing them to create their own mapping database from ground up.
Alongside this because of Apple will also be able to redesign their current logo for the app as well as a whole new color scheme and name, which reportedly will become “Maps”.
Probably the biggest feature of this, however, is, of course, the new 3D mode which will allow for “photo-realistic models of the world for search, navigation and geographic information systems,” which has all been possible due to technologies that C3 previously created.
This is a sample video of the sort of thing you could expect which looking at the hoover dam in 3D mode and I have got to say it looks amazing:
It’s probably safe to say that you can expect the iOS 6 update sometime this June, which is likely to include a lot more mind blowing features alongside this one.
Let us know in the comments below what you think about this and what you think will be included in iOS 6, or even what you would want to be featured. Also, follow the source link below this for more info.
