Apple drops Google Maps in iOS 6

There have already been rumors that Apple is working on their own map software. Today 9to5Mac reports that trusted sources have said that Apple is replacing Google Maps in iOS 6. The new Apple Maps implementation works similar to Google Maps, but is supposed to be cleaner, faster and more reliable.

A cool feature of the Apple Maps in iOS 6 is supposed to be an amazing new 3D mode. The 3D mode is based on the technology of C3 Technologies, a company Apple bought a while ago. Their technology is based on declassified military algorithms and produces photorealistic 3D maps. See videos and photos of the C3 maps here.

We might see iOS 6 as early as June at the WWDC 2012.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
