Apple Maps ‘2.0’ launches in the UK

Apple has released a redesigned Maps for UK users, featuring city guides, cycling directions, and its Google Street view-style ‘Look Around’ feature.

The US tech giant has worked with Ordnance Survey to bring a greater level of detail to British and Irish landmass and buildings for the new Maps interface.

Apple Maps ‘2.0’, which rolled out to the US in January, has better road coverage and pedestrian data, more precise addresses, and detailed land cover.

It also now offers cycling directions that route users along bike lanes and city guides showing the best restaurants and shops.

The Look Around feature enables users to explore large areas of London, Edinburgh, and Dublin at street level through 3D photography.
