Well it looks like Apple has made some progress on the latter front. Last night, reports started coming in that the Cupertino company has activated turn-by-turn voice navigation for its Maps app in Australia…
9to5Mac points to several tweets from iOS 6 users in the country who are confirming that the long-awaited service is finally available. The turn-by-turn feature was supposed to launch in Australia last month.
Nevertheless, it’s live now. And judging from initial reactions, it seems to be working fairly well. A few users have noticed, however, that there are missing/inaccurate suburb names in and around Melbourne.
For those of you in Australia looking to try this out, just open up your iOS 6 Maps app and give it a whirl. Since Apple activated the service from its end, there’s no need for users to install any updates.
