In recent times, there has been quite a turnaround over who is with whom and what goes with what in the technology world. Things are changing, some are for the better and some aren’t but gadget lovers will have to live with what they are given. It seems that everyone wants to know what Apple is up to today and to be honest, who doesn’t?
Apple is the biggest company in the world and everyone wants to know what they are up to and what could be in the mix for the future. Now, it does seem true that Apple have decided against using the old and useful Google Maps option on their devices and turned instead to their in house mapping solution. With the iOS 6, Google is out and their own iOS 6 Map solution is used but it is thought that iOS 6 Maps will work with Mac that runs with OS X Mountain Lion.
If this is the case then it is surely to be a bold but wise move. Apple did say only a few days ago that they will be using Open Street Map data from the iPhoto option will be now used with Mac and iOS. It is already everywhere online and they even have their own new website to let users know exactly what they are getting and why.
This might not be good news for Google Maps but it does seem that Apple is trying to become a huge force – bigger than what it is now. It seems impossible but actually it might not be. There are all sorts of rumours coming from Apple that they do not want to have to rely on any outsider for their devices. They want to apparently use their own Intel-powered processors which they don’t at the moment and if that is true, whoever knows what will happen next.
If the move to Mac does happen with the iOS 6 Maps, no one is quite sure what will happen. Most people seem to think the change won’t happen but then again, everything is so undecided that it’s almost impossible to tell the next move Apple will make. Right now however, everything is guess but it does seem that there are big changes ahead with Apple. It doesn’t even look as though anyone will be able to stop the mighty force of Apple and the ever great work of a legend Steve Jobs.
