Michael Potuck for 9to5Mac:

Apple has been working on a huge rebuild of Apple Maps in the US over the last year and a half. Now that the updates are rolled out across the country, Apple Maps uses only data it’s collected itself, can push updates in realtime, and features much more detail for users…

Now the rollout is complete as the Southeast has received the changes.

MacDailyNews Take: U.S. rollout complete with days to spare!


  1. 3D in satellite view is MIA for most of the USA, not sure how you can say Maps is rebuilt when much of the USA never had all that was touted for the first version.
    Look around while nice is like the fly around that still isn’t available outside of a few big metro areas.

  2. Not ccomplete. One thing’s for sure, Twitter is now accepted as FACT as I doubt any of the sites “reporting” on this even went as far as verifying that the rollout was actually complete and not just the result of ongoing testing.

  3. I noticed that my Apple Maps data reverted back a few days ago. I’m in the central Florida area and was excited to see detailed views of back streets and even the alley in our neighborhood. I could finally get directions directly to my garage door. I’m disappointed that all those details are gone again 🙁 Anyone know what happened?
