BGR claims that they have obtained from a trusted source exclusive info and photos of the upcoming Maps app, which will be one of the main features of iOS 6. Jonathan Geller wrote on BGR:
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. A photo of this feature can be seen in our gallery.
Apple is now putting the finishing touches on its 3D mapping functionality, and it is currently being tested in build 10A3XX of iOS 6.
Apple has already announced that they will reveal details about upcoming iOS 6 at WWDC 2012, which starts on June 11th in San Francisco. You can check out more blurry photos on BGR that show change in maps layout design when compared to Google’s Maps that iOS uses now.
