Apple Enables IOS 12 Users To Access Google Maps On CarPlay


With the release of iOS 12, you are no longer restrained to have Apple Maps on the car’s dashboard display. In June 2018, Apple announced that it is adding support for third-party navigation apps to CarPlay in iOS 12.


Following the iOS 12 release, Google updated its Maps app for iOS to the version 5.0, allowing iPhone users to access it on their infotainment systems. Google Maps on CarPlay comes with the same features as the mobile app, which includes search, alternative routes, live traffic updates, delays, and ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival). The users of CarPlay will require the installation of iOS12 for iPhone and later update it through the App Store with the latest version of Google Maps. The maps by Google will also enable the iPhone owners to start the navigation from their phone, and as soon as they connect with the CarPlay, it will pick up from where it was left off.


Rishabh Software has a dedicated team of experienced iPhone app developers with in-depth technical expertise in the domains like banking, finance, media, logistics, healthcare, social, hospitality, and transportation. Our team of iOS developers leverage scalable deployment options and deliver business-centric iOS applications that engage users on the go.

Microsoft To Bring Cosmos DB To Azure Stack And Azure Sphere


Microsoft is gearing up to bring its Cosmos DB NoSQL database to the company’s hybrid-computing and microcontroller platforms as a part of its strategy for ‘intelligent cloud, intelligent edge.’


The Azure Stack comes in the form of an app created to operate on specific server hardware. It offers customers the access to Microsoft’s Azure public-cloud platform, which they can manage within their own or partners’ on-premises datacenters. Further, Azure Stack and its secure microcontroller platform – Azure Sphere are positioned by Microsoft as the critical components of its “intelligent cloud, intelligent edge” strategy.


Judson Altoff, the Executive Vice President of Microsoft’s Worldwide Commercial Business, stated in his official statement that the company is pleased with the traction they are making with Azure Sphere, especially on the onset of 5G. He also mentioned that Azure Sphere would allow anyone to compute across all touch points, from the furthest edge, through the midpoints, and all the way to the public cloud.


Rishabh Software is a trusted partner offering Microsoft software development services and consulting for .NET programming, SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, Azure and Power BI.
