Future build of iOS 8 will allow Apple Maps to help you find your parked car

It looks like Apple Maps will help you find your parked car in some future build of iOS 8. Last month, we told you that Google Now has a card that will remind you where you parked, and will help you navigate to that location. Hidden images in the iOS 8 beta reveal that Apple is working on a similar feature for its beleaguered mapping application. The feature will require the use of the M7 motion coprocessor currently found only on the Apple iPhone 5s...

Google has this now, but who cares. Apple should absolutely include this, all mapping apps should both stay competitive, and be as helpful as possible. Kudos to google if they invented this, and to apple if they add it.

I know Apple is pushing this as a new feature. It is for Apple users. Should they never get this feature? Now Apple, shouldn't push this as "innovation" because it's not. It's "catch up". In the end, a feature like this is something every OS should have. I would hope after the last Apple Maps fiasco this has been tested to work well. No point in having this if you park your car at the mall, and it tells you to catch a flight to the other side of the country to get your car.
