Apple’s iOS 6 Maps App First Look

BGR reports, actually, even posted the first glimpse of iOS 6 Maps app. Apple has been working on an in-house mapping solution and now it seems that the time comes when company is finally in full swing to release a new Maps app for iOS. BGR’s Jonathan Geller describes the app in a bit more detail:

The app features a refreshed user interface including a brand new navigation bar. This bar, we’re told, is silver instead of blue. Since the current Maps app follows the standard blue iOS color scheme, we think it’s possible Apple might shift toward a silver color theme in iOS 6 like on the iPad.

The iPhone version of Maps has a floating locate me button (it sounds very similar to Android’s Google Maps app) in the bottom left corner. To access 3D mode, which will make use of Apple’s C3 Technologies acquisition, you have to peel back the lower right corner of Maps just like the current version and enable 3D mode. Once enabled, you can switch in and out of 3D mode by tapping a 3D icon in the lower left corner.
