Google has finally begun updating its most important apps with support for the new iPhone X display resolution, starting with Google Maps, arguably its most widely-used mobile software.

The mapping and navigation app now fills that beautiful edge-to-edge OLED display.

It’s fully embraced the notch with maps rendered behind the current time, connectivity and battery information in both “ears” to the left and right of the TrueDepth camera.

This is different than Apple Maps which blurs out content as it bleeds into each ear.

The app also accounts for the notch in landscape, cleverly positioning buttons and other actionable user interface elements inward rather than at the outermost edges of the display.

Aside from iPhone X support, Google Maps version 4.41 includes unspecified bug fixes.

Google Maps for iOS is available free from App Store.

    I love Google Maps, how it tracks your complete history of where you have been and when you were there. I had to recall an incident about 18 months back when I was in Florida and I was able to use Google Maps history to trace the exact date and time that I was at a certain location.

      At first, I thought this was going to be a sarcastic comment… ?

    • I love how you can search along your route. A basic feature that Apple maps still does not have.

        You could search along your route since IOS 10. IDB even wrote an article about it.

      • Rowan09
