    Apple maps will receive a major update: what are the new features that will come to the navigation app

    Apple introduced Business Connect, a new tool that will allow its users to find more information about businesses locations when they access Apple Maps, their native navigation application.

    The company explained that this will be possible thanks to the fact that the businesses themselves will be able to add cards with key information that allows them to connect with their potential customers in a more direct way. Likewise, it gives them the possibility of having greater control over the way in which users see them through the Internet, something that is crucial when it comes to getting potential new clients.

    “We created Business Connect to provide Apple users around the world with the more accurate information on places to eat, shop, travel and moresaid Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Services.

They hope that in the coming months the function can be available in the rest of the worldso that hundreds of millions of users can begin to see the additional information when they use Apple Maps.

    “Businesses can also provide customers with useful information by highlighting actions they can take directly from the Maps location card, such as ordering groceries through Instacart, making a hotel reservation through, or reserving a place for dine with OpenTable, and more, with just a touch”, adds Apple.
