Apple Maps is down; if you need directions, use Google Maps for now (UPDATE)

Apple Maps is down; if you need directions, use Google Maps for now (UPDATE)
If you're trying to get from point "A" to point "B" today and need directions, Apple Maps is not the way to go at this moment because the app is down. According to, 60% of those complaining say that Apple Maps is not providing them with any data, and 39% say that they can't open up the app. The issue is affecting all devices that support Apple Maps including the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch.

UPDATE:Apple has resolved the issue. Apple Maps is currently up and running.

Those trying to get directions using Apple Maps are receiving a message that reads, "Directions Not Available. Route information is not available at this moment." Luckily, we have a workaround. Install Google Maps on your iOS device (you'll find it on the App Store shelves next to the animal crackers). 

Apple's System Status does show that there are issues with Maps-Routing and Navigation, and Maps-Search. Once Apple Maps is back up and running, we will update this story, so check in often.
