New Delhi: A latest job posting by Apple Inc hints to the tech giantâ€™s plans of extending its Apple Maps service beyond its own devices.
Currently, Apple Maps is only available through dedicated apps on iOS 6 and later and OS X 10.9 Mavericks and newer. Although Apple has a dedicated web URL for the service, but it canâ€™t be used to access the Apple Maps through a browser and only allows users to share map data.
A report on Apple Insider notes that such a move would not be a huge surprise for the company, which already offers much of its iCloud service, as well as the iWork productivity suite, in cross-platform browser-based forms.
If the possible cross-platform Apple Maps is in-the-making, we might be able to see it getting officially announced at Appleâ€™s annual WWDC conference that is scheduled from June 8-12 and expected to unwrap possible features like crowd-sourced traffic information, indoor location tracking, and more detailed Flyover â€˜street viewâ€™ data.
