Apple Maps Connect

Greg Sterling (comments):

This afternoon, Apple notified us of a new self-service portal to add or edit local business listings: Apple Maps Connect. It’s intended for small business owners or their authorized representatives (though not agencies) to be able to quickly and easily add content directly into Apple Maps.

The service is free and the listings (or corrected listings) appear on Apple Maps on the PC and in mobile. All users sign in with their Apple IDs and passwords.

I thought we’d see something like this about two years ago, but it’s good that it finally exists.

Update (2015-04-10): Mitchel Broussard:

With the introduction of iOS 8.3 on Appleā€™s mobile devices yesterday, business owners now have the opportunity to claim a point of interest in Apple Maps as their own, thanks to a few additions to the Report a Problem prompt that can be found on each point of interest in Maps (via AppleMapsMarketing).

Apple Maps Connect has existed for quite a while, but maybe the business listings haven't been there.

It's US only, that isn't much of an existence.
