Apple might realize that dumping to Google Map from iOS 6 was its big gaffe and it has understood that it really needs to work hard on its mapping app. On the other side, Google announced its largest update to Google Street View so far on Thursday.

In addition to these, Google has also just concatenated the remote Canadian Arctic to its maps in order to create the most comprehensive map of the world.  Google has doubled the collections that allow map users to explore castles, parks city centers and tourist attractions like Russia Catherine palace, Ferapontoy Monastery and more. Here you can check out all the special collections in Google Street View.
