New Google Maps Hits iOS with iPad Support, Indoor Maps

Google rolled out its revamped Maps app for iOS today after releasing the redesigned service on Android last week. Apple Maps 2.0 was first unveiled at the search giant’s annual I/O developer’s conference back in May and features a refreshed UI with an emphasis on the Card-based design we’ve seen popping up across Google services, tablet optimization, enhanced navigation with live traffic reports, and a new Explore function that helps users find points of interest through integration with Zagat and Google Offers.

Google also claims that the updated Maps app for iOS includes indoor mapping, a feature the company introduced back in 2012 and allows people to see maps of indoor spaces, such as the Macy’s Store in New York City.

The Google Maps 2.0 update is optimized for the latest iPad, iPad Mini and the iPhone 5, but also works with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Like the previous version of Google Maps before it, the app requires iOS 6 or a later update to run.
