Apple Maps Now Getting Daily Updates

Apple iOS 6 Maps

When Apple Maps first launched it quickly became known as one of the company’s biggest missteps in years. The app was riddled with issues, and people even ended up lost or stranded after they followed its driving directions. Since then, Apple has made solid progress improving its mapping service, and now it looks like the Cupertino company is taking a huge step to fix the app once and for all.

In the past week Apple began updating its Maps app on a regular basis with corrections submitted by customers. The updates, which were spotted by Reddit user “heyyoudvd,” started arriving once per week over the past month. Then, last week the company started rolling out data updates every night at 3:00 a.m. Eastern to correct its point-of-interest data.

The updates are presumably based off the “Report a Problem” button on Apple Maps. Hopefully the company keeps updating its app on a daily basis, especially now that it seems to be taking user-submitted feedback much more seriously.
