Apple’s much maligned Maps application for iOS outperformed competitors Google Maps and Waze in a California driving test.
But in a new column or PC Magazine, it was found that Apple’s Maps for iPhone gave better directions in a head-to-head competition than both Google Mapsand Waze.
The test was conducted in the city of California during rush hour traffic to check the effectiveness and accuracy of maps in guiding the users through every nook and corner.
Three vehicles made several different stops in California, including Apple’s corporate headquarters in Cupertino. The fact that Apple outperformed Google and Waze in providing directions with traffic a real-world scenario made everyone admit that we now had to “wonder what the fuss was about” regarding dissatisfaction with Apple Maps.
In addition, it was believed that Google Maps has been a “little ragged” as of late, suggesting that the search company’s service has actually become worse over time — even when accessed via a regular computer.
“Apple Maps won this battle. So Apple got the last laugh.”
