Apple to use image data from Microsoft in its Maps App.
A new feature that Apple has introduced in its Keynote on Monday at the start of WWDC 2012 was iOS6. This new version of its mobile operating system, has among many things a fresh new map application, whose function is that it uses Google, as a motor of maps and images, but now has its own engine and uses OpenStreetMaps, TomTom and several other data sources. However, they found that Microsoft would also be part of the companies that provides data and images to this application. Nice eh?
