After hints that a broader international rollout was imminent, Apple Maps Connect has officially come to Germany, France and Canada.
As you might recall, word of Apple Maps Connect expanding to France and Germany appeared last Friday, when a website called Apple Maps Marketing noted that it was temporarily presented with the option to pick French or German as a language on the site. We speculated that this could mean that Apple Maps Connect would roll out in more European countries soon.
Looks like that was a safe bet. Late Friday, the service was officially expanded to include support for businesses in Canada, France and Germany, in addition to the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore and the United Kingdom.
Apple launched Apple Maps Connect last October. The portal allows small-business owners to make their operations more visible (and — perhaps more importantly — have accurate listings) within Apple Maps. It also made iBeacon tech available to small-business owners who had more than 1 million visitors a year.
With Apple Maps Connect finally beginning its non-English-speaking rollout, what countries will get it next?
