Google Maps to unveil 'next dimension' before Apple gives it the boot

With Apple expected to ditch Google Maps for its own mapping solution on iOS devices, the search giant will attempt to get in the first blow by announcing its own new features

 

Google plans to beat Apple to the punch by announcing the latest development of its Google Maps software before WWDC, where Apple is expected to launch its own app.

The company sent an invite to the media for an event on Wednesday June 6, where it'll discuss the 'newest dimension' of Google Maps, which could include a 3D mapping service of its own.

According to the invite Google will show-off features "that will help people get where they want to go – both physically and virtually."

The event comes just days before Apple addresses the world with its latest software innovations at WWDC in San Francisco on June 11.

It is widely thought that the company will take the wrapping of a revolutionary in-house mapping solution, ending years of speculation and its long association with Google Maps as the default provider for iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad.
