Apple Maps is down; use Google Maps as a workaround

Those trying to get directions using Apple Maps are receiving a message that reads, "Directions Not Available". This feature assumes, of course, that you've already setup the Google Maps app with your home and work addresses.

The Down Detector Maps showed Apple Maps was down mostly in the US with little to no outages reported in the United Kingdom.

As of 2:12 (ET),Apple's system status site showed that issues affecting Maps routing, navigation and search had been resolved.

Apple said it's working on a fix. "Route information is not available at the moment".

He renewed his attack even as prices fell on Wednesday amid expectation that the group may relax its output cuts later this month. Nigeria's production plunged 150,000 b/d in the month to 1.73 million b/d, a one-year low, according to the survey by Platts.

The outages affect all forms of Apple Maps, including those on Apple Watches and in vehicles with CarPlay, for users across the US, Canada, and other countries.

Apple confirmed the outage on its system status page.

At the time or writing, Apple Maps functions appear to be back up and running. Maps is a key feature for mobile devices like smartphones, used for navigating in the auto, by foot, or by public transportation. Additionally, Maps has benefited from being the sole source of directions when users ask for assistance from Siri, enabling an in-car voice request for driving guidance to nearby businesses or locations to automatically start providing spoken and visual directions.
