Google Maps is coming back to iOS 6

Google Maps looks set to return to iOS in app form after being ousted by Apple Maps in iOS 6.

Google Maps looks set to return to iOS in app form after being ousted by Apple Maps in iOS 6.

The nod came from Google executive Jeff Huber who wrote in a Google+ post, "We look forward to providing amazing Google Maps experiences on iOS."

No other details were offered, but it looks like we'll soon have a choice of mapping systems on iOS. We're hoping that Google's offering includes the navigation features that come free in its Android version (pictured).

The news that Apple's own maps application would replace Google Maps in iOS 6 was revealed at Apple's WWDC event earlier this month.

The new Apple Maps service is based on TomTom's mapping and sat-nav tech and will be available from August when the iOS 6 update is released.
