Maps Are Where It's At

With Maps on the iPad mini, you can quickly and easily discover exactly where you are, find nearby restaurants and businesses, get turn-by-turn driving instructions from any address to any other address, and see real-time traffic information and a photographic street view of many locations as well.

The Maps app has improved a lot since Apple replaced Google Maps with its own homegrown version in iOS 6. Apple says it's “beautifully designed from the ground up (and the sky down),” and we have to agree — it's more beautiful than ever. But beyond its good looks, zooming in and out is faster than ever, and the spoken turn-by-turn navigation with real-time traffic updates actually works in most places. Plus it has a cool 3D flyover view.
