However, if you have an iPhone you may have to wait as the Google Maps app has not been updated for this purpose as yet. With Apple’s very own version of a Maps app launching with iOS 6, there has been plenty of speculation that a brand new Google Maps app will be made available to buy from the App Store later this year.
