Those that tried to make use of Apple Maps this morning throughout their commutes have been met with a irritating scenario—Apple’s navigation app hasn’t been working correctly for a lot of the day. Issues appeared round 7am PT/10am ET, leading to errors when customers looked for route instructions and for particular areas.
The message “Instructions not out there—route data shouldn’t be out there at this second” seems when trying to find instructions, and trying to find particular locations like “Penn Station” or “JFK Airport” yields a “No outcomes discovered” message.
The outages have an effect on all types of Apple Maps, together with these on Apple Watches and in automobiles with CarPlay, for customers throughout the US, Canada, and different international locations. These utilizing an iPhone or iPad can select to make use of one other navigation app like Google Maps or Waze, however those that depend on CarPlay and different techniques that do not supply an alternate mapping service will likely be out of luck.
Whereas most customers reported issues with Apple Maps, it seems that different native Apple apps that depend on location providers could also be having issues as effectively. We tried to seek for and add Miami as a brand new location within the Climate app however have been met with a “No outcomes discovered” message (each when trying to find “Miami” and “33101,” one of many zip codes in Miami-Dade county). For now, climate studies for present areas aren’t developing both.
Apple has acknowledged the outages on its System Standing assist web page. Each Maps Routing & Navigation and Maps Search are marked with the “Problem” tag, and the main points say that every one customers are affected by the outages. Apple is at the moment investigating the difficulty, however there is not any phrase on after we will see the Maps app totally functioning once more.
