With the introduction of iOS 6 in September 2012, Apple Inc. removed
the map system based on Google Maps and introduced its own map system
for iPhone and iPad users. The introduction of Apple Maps, like any new
technology, came with its own problems.
In December 2012, Google released its Google Maps SDK for iOS.
(Check the Google Maps SDK for iOS page for additional documentation as
new features are deployed to the product.) Google Maps for iOS has a
long, solid track record, given the use of its data in Android and many
years of usage. The introduction of Google Maps for iOS has resulted in a
measurable increase in the number of users who have updated their
existing iPhones from iOS version 5 to iOS version 6. This article will
look at using Google Maps for iOS using Xamarin.iOS.
