DuckDuckGo Will Employ Apple Maps On The Web For Local Searches

DuckDuckGo has invested the past few years creating the case that it is the search engine that can defend your privacy, and now it is attempting to boost that claim with a new associate—Apple. It is declaring that Apple Maps will now fuel its local search outcomes on both mobile web browsers and desktop. Apple Maps will be the default supplier for local and address searches, and it will also be the map you view when you tap for extra results. DuckDuckGo claims that it will now have “enhanced address searches, enhanced satellite imagery, additional visual features, and continually upgraded maps.”

The terms of the agreement “are secret,” DuckDuckGo claims. That comprises whether any cash is being exchanged or if DuckDuckGo is restricted by the same “every day limit of 25,000 service calls and 250,000 map views” that Apple applies on firms that incorporate its maps for free on the web. Apple does not have the solid pedigree for offering tools that creators can incorporate into their web applications, but that may be beginning to change.

On a related note, the native mapping app by Apple, Apple Maps, earlier began to roll out the highly expected turn-by-turn navigation in India. The feature allows you navigate from one destination to another. You can also toggle between the Walk and Drive modes on the Apple Maps application. In the same manner, Apple has offered the Ride and Transport options to allow you easily get to your destination.

The application also offers you with metrics such as the total distance between your present location & your destination and an estimated time of arrival (ETA). Also, you can verify all the accessible routes to your location. All this makes the race harder for Google Maps, which is the most popular option among consumers so far.
