Composite Mockup of iOS 6 Maps App Based on Purported Leaked Screenshots

BGR reports that it has received a set of blurry photos showing portions of the new Maps app that Apple is said to be preparing for launch in iOS 6. Based on those photos, the site has put together a composite mockup demonstrating how the app would appear in its entirety.

BGR has obtained exclusive information and photos of parts of Apple’s new Maps app from a trusted source, and the app features a refreshed user interface including a brand new navigation bar. This bar, we’re told, is silver instead of blue. Since the current Maps app follows the standard blue iOS color scheme, we think it’s possible Apple might shift toward a silver color theme in iOS 6 like on the iPad.

The iPhone version of Maps has a floating locate me button (it sounds very similar to Android’s Google Maps app) in the bottom left corner. To access 3D mode, which will make use of Apple’s C3 Technologies acquisition, you have to peel back the lower right corner of Maps just like the current version and enable 3D mode. Once enabled, you can switch in and out of 3D mode by tapping a 3D icon in the lower left corner.

The full set of actual screenshots, which show the 3D map toggle button, a new silver-themed "Directions" button and several closeups of map content, are available in a photo gallery.

Weve seen this before

Sadly nothing too impressive.

Hilariously fake! What a bad piece of photoshop.

Agreed, these "mockups" are useless.

On another subject, though, I don't see the usefulness of a photorealistic 3D view for navigation. That's like saying I can stand in the Hollywood Hills, look out over Los Angeles, and figure out what streets I need to take by looking at the city. :confused: What I need is a 2D overhead view of the streets! No need to add complexity just for the sake of "improving".

Turn by turn, please

I know there are some good turn-by-turn solutions paid and free, but it would be nice if Apple offered one with the OS without need for a subscription.

Exactly!

I can't stand the 3D navigation maps or even the Bird's Eye or whatever the slanted look is that many GPS systems use.

I like a straight over head shot. I can easily see there are 4 streets before my turn not 2 and maybe some more but can't see when they are squished on an angle.

Does every leak require a blurry cam shot. How do you get those all the time anyway?
