Google has finally gotten around to updating its Maps app on iOS to support the iPhone X. This means instead of letterboxing the app will now occupy the entire screen, including the little ears around the infamous notch.
Maps joins Google's slow but steady stream of iOS updates adding support for the iPhone X. So far apps like YouTube, Keep, Docs, Sheets, and Slides have been updated but almost every other, including the likes of Chrome, Gmail, Google Search, Drive, Photos, Calendar, and Gboard have not been updated yet.
Also, even when it does update, it's not always perfect.
The Google Maps iPhone X update is almost a month late, and even then it’s wrong. Clipped corners and too close to the home indicator. 🙄 pic.twitter.com/o9TeWi1vjt— Adam Swinden (@AdamSwinden) November 30, 2017
Apple maps doesnÂ’t work in my country and so many other places around the world, google maps are all over the planet !
Yup poor Apple users, you do know they get BOTH maps right? Seems to me like the iPhone users are winning, getting the best from all worlds.
Don't get me wrong I know Google Maps is really good but Apples maps are not bad. They sure do have a lot of work to go through but they are getting there. Lets not forgot for how long Google Maps has been around compared to Apple Maps.
