iOS 6: Google’s Maps Dropped, Replaced with Apple’s own 3D Mapping Mode

Earlier this morning, Mark Gurman from 9to5mac reported that in iOS 6 will have a completely-in-house maps application that will be replacing Google Maps in the default iOS maps application. With this upgraded app, Apple will be reducing their dependency with Google and also the new app will offer “a much cleaner, faster, and more reliable experience”.

According to trusted sources, Apple has an incredible headline feature in development for iOS 6: a completely in-house maps application. Apple will drop the Google Maps program running on iOS since 2007 in favor for a new Maps app with an Apple backend.

The image above was just made by 9to5mac as a mockup. If you really want to see what Apple’s new cutting-edge mapping looks like, you can see the videos below:




These videos were made by C3 Techologies, which was acquired by Apple back in 2011. iOS 6 is most likely going to debut at the World Wide Developer’s Conference and Apple Maps will probably be released at this time. Looks like 2012 is going to be a great year for iOS!
