BGR has posted somewhat blurry photos which purport to be from Apple’s rumored Maps app in iOS 6 which will reportedly do away with Google Maps while also incorporating a nifty 3D viewing option based on technology it acquired when it purchased C3 Technologies.
Apple has been working on an in-house mapping solution for a few years, and it appears as if the company is finally ready to release a new Maps app for iOS, sidestepping Google’s mapping data for its own. BGR has obtained exclusive information and photos of parts of Apple’s new Maps app from a trusted source, and the app features a refreshed user interface including a brand new navigation bar. This bar, we’re told, is silver instead of blue. Since the current Maps app follows the standard blue iOS color scheme, we think it’s possible Apple might shift toward a silver color theme in iOS 6 like on the iPad.
