With the impending approach of iOS 14, things will be changing a bit. Currently, Apple Maps uses Yelp and TripAdvisor regarding reviews for local businesses and business related content.
According to 9to5Mac:
“As of the latest iOS 14 beta, it appears that Apple is looking to remove dependencies on Foursquare and Yelp as sources of reviews and user photos of restaurants, bars, shops, parks, and other points of interest.”
Apple has started rolling gout its very own first-party solution that will end u replacing the partnerships with these sites with its on POI listings.
With this change, will there be any damage to the likes of TripAdvisor and Yelp with this change? I”m sure there will certainly be a change in their numbers when the switch over is finally done.
