    Hi,

    Sorry if somebody already posted this.

    Have you guys noticed that when you log in on icloud.com and click on Find my iPhone - maps you see is actually Google maps.
    How is that possible?

    The only reason it hooks into Apple Maps on iOS is because of the mapping API. Otherwise it'll use Google because there is no web version of Apple Maps.

    Plus you'd want to use mapping software that gets accurate results, right?
