Google Maps on iOS gets updated to support iPhone X

Google has finally gotten around to updating its Maps app on iOS to support the iPhone X. This means instead of letterboxing the app will now occupy the entire screen, including the little ears around the infamous notch.

Maps joins Google’s slow but steady stream of iOS updates adding support for the iPhone X. So far apps like YouTube, Keep, Docs, Sheets, and Slides have been updated but almost every other, including the likes of Chrome, Gmail, Google Search, Drive, Photos, Calendar, and Gboard have not been updated yet.

Also, even when it does update, it’s not always perfect.

The Google Maps iPhone X update is almost a month late, and even then its wrong. Clipped corners and too close to the home indicator. 🙄 pic.twitter.com/o9TeWi1vjt
