Google Maps for iOS has received a major update

With Google Maps belonging to Google, it is understandable that Google would push out updates for its Android platform first before updating its other platforms, such as iOS. Well the good news for iOS users is that if you were hoping to gain more Google Maps functionality, you might be pleased to learn that Google has recently updated its Google Maps app for iOS. The update doesn’t exactly bring about groundbreaking new features, but will offer up conveniences to users that will hopefully make the app’s usage a lot better.

Google has tweaked its Google Maps app for iOS with a few new updates today which are primarily designed to make it easier to navigate search results and discover places around you. The updated app now shows search results with descriptions directly on the map and offers the option of switching between grid and map view in a bid to help you find the place you’re looking for more quickly. Google has also tweaked the ‘Explore’ feature – a local guide that suggests places and activities based on your location and the time – for better results. Rounding off the list of notable changes is an option to display all of your reservations and events from Gmail labelled directly on the map
