Apple Maps to Get Native Ratings System and Photo Uploads for Places of Interesthttps://www.macrumors.com
The latest iOS 14 beta 6 includes a new way for users to review places of interest and upload photos to Apple Maps that doesn’t rely on third party integrations. We did see that Apple has a My Business Register (think of it as Apple’s version of Google My Business).
The new user interface for places of interest in Maps no longer pulls reviews and photos from the likes of Foursquare, TripAdvisor, and Yelp. Instead, Apple is replacing these third-party services with its own native rating system.
Going forward, users who tap a marker for a place on the map that they have physically visited will be offered the ability to recommend a place using a thumbs up/thumbs down rating that can also distinguish between relevant categories, such as ratings for the quality of products and services in a shop, for example.
