Updates include more details on roads, bike paths, sidewalks, parking lots, buildings, parks, swimming pools and water bodies.

Like the Midwest update in October, the updated version for the Southeast appears to be moving across platforms at different times.

The move also appears to mean Apple has ended its deployment to improved Maps data. Apple has previously promised that the revamped map will cover the entire United States by the end of 2019.

Apple is understood to have spent “billions of dollars” since 2012 to rebuild Apple Maps. The releases will be part of an antitrust investigation apple is facing, though the company has never disclosed the exact amount.

Apple Maps has been undergoing major changes, with the launch of iOS 13 bringing with it a new feature called Look Around – which is thought to be designed to compete with Google Maps’ Street View features.
