Google Maps for iPhone Adds Areas of Interest, Rolls Out Cleaner UI

The latest update has highlighted the necessary information in order to make it a bit easy for users to easily access the significant information. It has removed the elements which are not required.

“The world is full of information, which means highlighting necessary info on the map without overcrowding it is a balancing act. So as part of this update, we’ve removed elements that aren’t absolutely required (like road outlines). The result is a cleaner look that makes it easier to see helpful and actionable information like traffic and transit. And we’ve improved the typography of street names, points of interest, transit stations, and more to make them more distinguishable from other things on the map, helping you navigate the world with fewer distractions,” Google.
