I was surprised at how little time Apple Maps got in the iPhone5 launch event, but then again they had a lot to cover. Below are the features they presented. Thanks to The Verge’s live coverage! (Great artists steal right?):
Apple Has Built a Local Search Engine
“We’ve built a search engine in to find POIs — we have over 100m points of interest.”
Turn by turn directions in landscape and portait mode.
3D satellite imagery with flyover mode.
Now you can post to Facebook using Siri. Not sure if it will include location (e.g. “Checking out the socialist pizzas at Big Apple Pizza & Pasta”).
And that’s pretty much it. More coming when I get my hands on that damn phone.
