Apple Plans to Take Over the World. Our title may be a tad sensationalist, but it seems that there is nothing this giant of a company can’t or won’t do. They have already changed the world with their phenomenal range of electronic products – from the iPad Pro, the perfect accompaniment to any family holiday, the MacBook air, a must-have for any freelancer, all the way to the iPhone, which is essentially a necessity for anyone over the age of 12.
As if that wasn’t enough Apple are now planning to use drones to enhance the use of their products. Apple Maps had a very shaky start with most people criticising it for being, well, just not very good. Articles like “is Apple still the laughing stock of map apps” make it pretty clear that industry and layperson alike were unimpressed with this Google and Waze competitor. This was due to incorrect turning directions, mislabeled landmarks, as well as a whole host of other issues that meant Apple failed to make much headway in this market.
However, finally after 4 long years in the cold, Apple Maps is finding some good fortune. This is largely thanks to its integration with third party apps as well as increasingly more advanced software which even includes transportation routes. In fact, according to a recent survey, Apple Maps is now used three times more than Google Maps on iOS, which is a phenomenal recovery akin to Bolton Wanderers entering the Premier League. It is pretty darn good, and whilst Google still rules the roost, that could well be set to change as Apple continues to drive Apple Maps forward. That’s how Apple Plans to Take Over the World.
Their latest venture is drones. According to Bloomberg, who found a 2015 document from the Federal Aviation Administration granting Apple a license to “operate an unmanned aircraft system to conduct data collection, photography and videography.” It looks as if Apple is introducing drones in order to map locations and update its maps more quickly than it currently can, as it currently only uses mapping vans.
This data would be collected and sent to Apple’s navigation team allowing user maps to be updated far quicker than ever before. In a rather dastardly move, Apple has poached at least one employee away from Amazon’s Prime Air drone project to work on its own, which is based in Seattle. Apple Plans to Take Over the World
AlsoApple Plans to Take Over the World so recently bought indoor.io for indoor mapping, which would allow Apple to compete with Google who already provide maps of shopping centers and museums. Apple not only wants to offer its users that feature, but also an indoor positioning system which would work in harmony with the iPhone’s sensors to locate you within a building. As if all that wasn’t enough, Apple is also adding better assistance for changing lanes whilst driving – both of these new App features are set to be released with the latest upgrade in 2017.
