TomTom Confirms Deal With Apple

Apple Maps iOS 6

We reported earlier that Apple intended to abandon Google Maps, later this year. After all, Google earns its 2% revenue by its usage on iPhone and iPad.

Now Apple is ready to present its own version of maps. Apple may have worked hard to build its in-house mapping expertise but the iPhone-maker still needs to rely on some outside partners to assist it with the massive project of developing its own mapping and turn-by-turn navigation services. This is because Apple is entering this field of technology as a rookie.

A number of observers noted references to “TomTom and others” in various locations within Apple’s new Maps app for iOS 6. Now the mapping company has confirmed its deal with Apple in a brief press release.

TomTom has signed a global agreement with Apple for maps and related information. No further details of the agreement will be provided.
