It’s Not Terrible Anymore (And Sometimes, It’s Better)
As we mentioned, Apple Maps has long had a less-than-sterling reputation. For the most part, that was due to a botched launch that included terrible or inaccurate directions, as well as tons of bugs and generally bad performance. But Apple Maps has come a long way since then, and Apple is continually working to improve it..
In fact, in some cases, the directions you get from Apple Maps may even be better than Google’s. Comparing the two navigation apps, Google Maps or Waze may send you down weird roads or unexpected detours to shave off a few seconds of travel time. If you prefer keeping to the main roads, Apple Maps may serve you better.
