The application’s maps were buggy, occasionally directing you to drive throughout physical bodies of water to obtain where you would like to go. It was bad sufficient that Tim Cook openly apologized for the service. Time has actually enhanced the solution, yet problems mentioned by customers seldom appeared to get fixed … till recently.

This one Reddit individual has actually viewed even more renovations made to Apple Maps information in the last month than in the previous 2 years integrated.
The brand-new daily updates are coming at 3 a.m. Eastern time.
Over the previous month, Maps were being updated when a week (every Friday) for me, today, that has boosted additionally. Over the previous couple of days, I have actually noticed an upgrade occurevery single day at 3am Eastern. At precisely 3am, Apple presses out brand-new data and corrects several of the troubles that customers had actually formerly mentioned. For instance, I saw that if I open the application at 2:59 but then again at 3:01, the map would reload itself, and a number of POI modifications and updates would suddenly be existing. Each day, a handful of corrections in my area are made (numerous of which are the ones I reported in the past week), and after just a couple of days of this, I’m starting to see a real improvement in my location.
Apple Maps has had a hard life, from its harsh launching to not making an appearance at this year’s WWDC due to mentioned shake ups in the development team. These updates are a come in the right instructions. With any luck when Maps relaunches in iOS 8 we’ll be viewing a new party of the navigation application.
