Apple Launches New Maps Connect For Local Businesses

In an effort to enhance Apple Maps, Apple recently released a self-service feature for local business owners to create listings. This portal is called Apple Maps Connect

Maps Connect is intended for local business owners to create their listing, as well as update contact info, business categories, hours, and social profile links. Business owners can add information directly into the mapping service.

By following a few steps and verifying the business via automated phone call, local business owners all over the country can create a presence on Maps. Maps Connect is currently available to only U.S. businesses, but Apple says that more countries will be added soon.

UPDATE: Apple Maps Connect for small businesses is now available across the globe! The Apple Maps Connect service has expanded into more countries, including the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, and more. Check out this link for more info.

  • Thanks for sharing. Last week it was Groupon Pages, now Apple Maps Connect. I just hope they can start providing accurate directions… I am not a big fan of Apple Maps. But we can’t ignore it.
