Google Maps for iOS has been updated this morning and with it brings one of the most anticipated updates: Google Maps support for Apple CarPlay.
Back when CarPlay launched, its relatively closed ecosystem was billed as an advantage.
With Google Maps' update now out the door, users can enjoy all that it has to offer via a car's built-in touchscreen thanks to CarPlay and that's a great thing if you have a vehicle with such functionality. But Apple finally changed that with the launch of iOS 12. Nonetheless, it was an iPhone disconnect that left many drivers frustrated.
The availability of Google Maps in cars that support Apple CarPlay means additional inventory for advertisers as Google Maps users can now use the app natively with CarPlay. With the new version of the iPhone software released yesterday, Google wasted no time in pushing out an update to Google Maps in the App Store. That adds compatibility with CarPlay.
We are expecting Waze and some other third-party, non-Apple Maps, products to be available as well on Apple CarPlay in the near future.
