Apple Maps rumored to make its way to Windows and Android devices as an online service
At the moment, Apple Maps is only available on Apple devices running iOS 6 or newer or OS X 10.9 Mavericks or newer, but if this rumor turns out to be accurate, then a web-based Apple Maps service could be used by all users independent of the operating system of choice. This means that Ubuntu users, Windows users, and Android users would all be able to use Apple Maps.
Even if this rumor is accurate, we're not certain that Apple Maps would be much of a success on other operating systems. At the moment, Apple Maps lags well behind Google Maps, despite the fact that Apple certainly improved on the product since its disappointing launch. Apple is rumored to bring further improvements to Maps in a future update by adding support for public transportation and traffic information.
