We’ve previously heard a rumor that Apple is totally ditching Google Maps for iOS 6, instead creating their own, completely new mapping solution in the updated version of iOS 6 Maps. Now, building on what’s already supposed, BGR has mocked up the image above from new leaked information. They were sent a series of super-blurry shots that give away some of the new features.
It’s said to have a silver navigation bar, as well as a redesigned interface, and a 3D mode:
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.
