    Apple to Drop Google Maps in iOS 6



    9to5 Mac reports today that it has heard from “trusted sources” that Apple is planning to ditch Google Maps from the forthcoming iOS 6 and replace it with its own in-house map app. The sources say that the new Maps app from Apple is similar to Google Maps, but is a “much cleaner, faster, and more reliable experience.” 9to5 Mac explains that while Apple has always had control of the Google Maps app in iOS ever since it started using it in 2007, the backend has always been Google’s. Now Apple plans to change this, having acquired Placebase, C3 Technologies and Poly9 and used them to create a mapping database. The new Maps app will have a new logo, as well as a “powerful” new 3D mode, which 9to5 Mac’s sources say comes from C3 Technologies, and which features “beautiful, realistic graphics based on de-classified missile target algorithms.” Google’s Street View will also be replaced by a similar in-house Apple version.

    As long has this is the case then I'm not bothered if the Google Maps app gets dropped in iOS 6.

    I am not sure if it'll work for international geographies such as India. If it doesn't it'll be a deal breaker. May be they should continue to support traditional google map as well.

    I am not too thrilled about this as the Google maps I think is the most accurate mapping program. If anything Apple needs to get the same type of software like Google Nav which is free and very accurate.

    Does apple do Anything for free? I think it will work well but will require yearly subscrition.
