Apple chooses TomTom for its Maps

 
Everyone was stunned by the news that apple is digging Google maps & we were waiting to hear from Apple, what software would be replacing Google as map provider? According to some leaked screenshots from the iOS 6 developer beta running on an iPhone 4S, it appears to be TomTom. The company is no stranger to iOS, as its navigation app and car kit have been available on the iPhone since 2009. On an interesting note, the maps application specifically mentions “data from TomTom, others,” which means there may be other suppliers that aren’t getting called out by name. We’ll keep you posted as we hear more what’s going on behind-the-scenes.
 

Update: TomTom has independently confirmed that it indeed “has signed a global agreement with Apple for maps and related information.”
