Google Maps has been on Apple’s iOS devices since the first iPhone was launched back in 2007, it was replaced last week by Apple’s own Maps App which has come under a lot of criticism since it was released.
Yesterday we heard from Google’s Eric Schmidt that Google has not submitted a new Google Maps app to Apple for approval, and he also didn’t say when Google intended to launch a stand alone Google Maps app for Apple’s iOS.
Now according to a report for the New York Times, who have received some information from someone working on Google Maps, Google are in the process of building a new Maps app for Apple’s iPhone and iPad.
According to the report the team working on the new iOS Google Maps app are hoping to finish the app by the end of the year, although whether or not Apple will end up approving the application remains to be seen.
