The revamped Maps app features richer landscape details such as roads, parking lots, parks, buildings, airports, and more. Apple uses its own vehicles equipped with LiDAR sensors and cameras to obtain mapping data.

Apple worked for over a year to complete the rollout of the new Maps app in the United States, and the process concluded in January 2020 with the expansion to the Southeast and Central United States.

No, actually it isn't. Portugal isn't even in the G20.
As if the only "real" countries were the ones with the largest economies. What a joke.

No France either, but hey, we can now see every zebra crossing in San Francisco in 3D! ? /s

The tiniest country with the most dedicated bike lanes still hasn't received the new maps.

Is this a trick question? Yes, by definition, the real countries are the ones with the largest economies.
And the rest are imaginary?
