At the beginning of the week, at WWDC 2021 developer’s conference, Apple announced a new Map with new AR features that will come to the market with iOS 15. This will make the native navigation app more competitive with Google’s offering. Now, the Apple Maps includes richer elevation data, more road colors, rich labels and 3D landmarks. Thus, AR is getting deeper and deeper in commonly-used apps.
