Apple Launches Maps Connect – Letting Business Owners Manage Their Apple Maps Listings

Apple Maps was always lacking in a way to connect business owners to their business listings – allowing for change of addresses, contact numbers and hours of operation to be handled smoothly and quickly. Alas this has finally changed as Apple has announced Apple Maps Connect which finally allows small business owners to manage their listings on Apple Maps. Things don’t just stop there though, along with Maps Connect Apple has also integrated a tool for setting up indoor positioning in select areas. This allows businesses to setup interior views of their venues and locations.

Furthermore if you’re business isn’t listed already – you can now easily list your business and verify it via a phone call or email address.

Lastly the iBeacon-powered indoor mapping tool allows businesses to setup interior views of their businesses on Apple Maps to help guide users through their venues. This tool is currently limited only to locations that meet the following specific criteria:

  • Accessible to the general public
  • Annual visitors in excess of 1 million per year
  • Availability of complete, accurate, and scaled reference maps
  • Enabled with Wi-Fi throughout
  • Associated app is authorized by venue owner

To list or edit your business listing on Apple Maps simply head on over here. To check your eligibility for access to the indoor mapping tool login here. Both instances will require a login with an Apple ID.
