The best sat nav apps for iPhone: Apple Maps
Free with a new iPhone or iPad
When it launched back in 2012 to replace Google Maps as the default mapping app on iOS, Apple Maps was met with sceptical hesitation from users. Skip past people supposedly driving into lakes and ravines after listening to Maps (not the app’s fault) to today, and the app is excellent – particularly the Flyover feature, which allows you to view detailed 3D structures to help orientate yourself.
Everything you’d expect from a navigation app is here: turn-by-turn instructions, live traffic info and detailed driving/walking instructions areclear and well presented on-screen. You can trust in Apple to get you from A to B (finally).
