Apple Maps May Soon Become Cross-Platform, Reveals Job Listing
So far, the Apple Maps have only been made available to users of iOS and OS X. However, a web-based solution would allow users on other platforms, such as Microsoft’s Windows or even Google’s Android, to access the service. Even though Apple already uses a URL for its mapping service at maps.apple.com, but in its current form it cannot be used to access Apple Maps via a browser. Currently, the URL only allows users to share map data with other users.
Back in April, Apple had advertised plans to bring public transit information to Apple Maps, while this advert marks the second time this year Apple has revealed its plans for its Maps service via a job listing.
