Google has updated the Google Maps app to support the iPhone X’s longer display nearly a month after its release.
Up until now, Google Maps users on the iPhone X were treated to big black bars at the top and the bottom. It was kind of an eye sore and really frustrating that Google waited so long to support the bigger display. Most app makers had their iPhone X update ready at launch save for a few companies, but none of them have the resources Google does.
Regardless, the update is here and takes advantage of the iPhone X’s quirky 5.8-inch display, notch and all. It looks fantastic. Google just pushed out an update for Docs, Sheets and Slides earlier this week, so it was only a matter of time before the Maps update rolled out.
The update is now available in the iOS App Store. You can download it now.
