Users in Australia are reporting that Apple has updated its Apple Maps service to provide improved navigation and mapping details, though not everyone is impressed.

Apple has most recently been surveying Australia for Apple Maps from February 2021 through June 2021, and now the resulting data is being rolled out to users.

"New Apple Maps data for Australia just dropped," said another local Twitter user. "It's better but still a mess - a whole bunch of weird locality names below the suburb level, rocky headlines the same shading as beaches, the individual building shapes are all a bit off."

The improvements follow the similar rolling out of new iOS 15 Apple Maps features, such as improved navigation, and 3D buildings, to Italy and Andorra.
