Google Maps picks up iPhone X support

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.
