Beginning this month, Apple Maps vehicles will be driving across Canada throughout the summer. Apple says it will be capturing road details, signage and landmarks — “all to make the most accurate and useful Maps experience possible.”
The information collected will be worked on by the company’s teams in Cupertino, California. Apple will publish the data in a future product update.
“We always have your privacy in mind, so we’re working closely with local regulators to ensure we follow all laws and regulations. All of our vehicles are marked Apple Maps, so you’ll always know it’s us,” Apple says. “Privacy is a fundamental Apple principle, so we’re proud to build it into everything we do.”
