Last week, Apple released its latest batch of new iPhones and Apple Watches. Our developers are acting fast to the updates and releasing support the iOS 13 and watchOS 6 updates this month. And, we’ll be testing new devices as soon as they are delivered.

MORE MAPS:

We continue to add more premium topographic maps in Italy. We added three new FRATERNALI maps in the Valdaosta Region, including Mont Blanc. We now have complete coverage of Lake Garda area in Trentino and other maps from 4Land. And, we released a major updated to the Foreste Casentinesi National Park map by MONTI.

So many islands and beaches, so little time. We now have 117 maps covering most of Greece. Our map gurus also added outdoor-ready maps for Malta and Gozo too. Lastly, we updated our Ordnance Survey maps with the latest available updates. Premium+OS Maps subscribers get all these OS updates for free.
