“Apple seems to be testing a new notification feature in its Maps application, based on a report and screenshots captured by a MacRumors reader,” Richard Padilla reports for MacRumors.

“The user reported an error to Apple in the Maps app on April 6 and was given an option to receive a notification when the issue was resolved, with Apple sending a push notification on April 8 indicating the problem had been fixed,” Padilla reports. “It appears that the feature is still in testing at this point and it is unclear when it might be made available to all users.”
