iOS 5 Will Continue to Use Google Maps

Despite numerous reports that Apple is working on its own maps service, iOS 5 will reportedly continue to use Google Maps, according to 9to5Google.

Sources have told 9to5Google that although Apple is working to improve the iOS Maps application, iOS 5 will not bring an Apple developed maps service and Google Maps is still in. Besides Apple’s purchase of both Placebase and Poly9, some speculated that Apple is building their own maps service to either compete with Google or step away from their input into iOS.

Apple itself confirmed that it’s working on a traffic database in its Q&A on Location Data.

Apple is now collecting anonymous traffic data to build a crowd-sourced traffic database with the goal of providing iPhone users an improved traffic service in the next couple of years.
