Apple users in India are now getting Nearby feature support on Maps. The company’s Map platform has lagged behind Google Maps in the country, but is slowly looking to make up for the lost time. Nearby feature basically lets iPhone users search for restaurants, gas station or chemist in a specific area. Also Read - Apple updates 16-inch MacBook Pro and Mac Pro with new hardware options

Apple users can tap on the search bar on Maps and get a drop down list of services available. This is one of the main features offered by Apple Maps in India. In addition to this, you can use turn-by-turn navigation which was launched in 2019. Apple has been working on localized features for the Indian market. And with iOS 13 we’ve come across the improvements made by the company. Also Read - Apple patents a new glass technology to make iPhone more durable

But it’s hard to argue that Google Maps is the undisputed leader of the pack in the country. After all, you have more than 95 percent users in the country with Android phones, on which Google Maps is the default choice for navigation. It’s not like you don’t have any other option besides Google Maps but it’s possible the company has kept other solutions on the sidelines.  One such example is MapmyIndia, which has been around for many years but never came into prominence with Android.
