Apple has acquired Map software companies like C3 Technologies, Placebase and Poly9 which will be used to power Maps in the new version of iOS.The new Maps will be having a new logo, will be faster, smoother and more reliable. C3 technologies has shown some amazing examples of how their 3D maps will look like and function. The report also says that there would be a new 3D Mode in the Maps application, which will provide realistic 3D models of locations.

C3 Technologies had earlier demoed their technology on Android and iOS devices at CES 2011.

There are also reports from AllThingsD that will be using its own Mapping in iOS 6.

Sources tell 9to5Mac that Apple will abandon Google’s mapping backend in the next major iteration of iOS, replacing it with a brand new mapping application powered by Apple technology. We’ve independently confirmed that this is indeed the case. Sources describe the new Maps app as a forthcoming tent-pole feature of iOS that will, in the words of one, “blow your head off.”

    Wow this is certainly an interesting move for Apple. Moving away from Google for their Maps services may or may not pay off – users are familiar with Google Maps and may not be willing to move away from it. Will the Maps app as we know it today still be available in the App Store too?

    I guess we’ll have to see in the coming months what happens, or at WWDC as you said on this page.
