Apple Maps is more broken than usual

Both Maps Routing & Navigation and Maps Search are marked with the "Issue" tag, and the details say that all users are affected by the outages. Google Maps already exists and is vastly superior.

Apple has confirmed that its popular Maps navigation app isn't working worldwide. Essentially anything else but Apple Music would be a better solution to this directional problem. Apple is now investigating the issue, but there's no word on when we will see the Maps app fully functioning again. It reads: "We investigated and resolved this issue".

Update 10:46AM PDT: Apple has updated their System Status page to indicate everything is now working properly, as of 10:05AM PDT. Are you experiencing outages with Apple Maps right now? The Apple directions app has been down since 9:55 a.m., according to Down Detector.

In a tweet, Apple's Support account said that it would update the system status page 'as more information becomes available'.

The Trump Presidency: Trump announces 25% tariff on Chinese goods
He has identified reducing the $375 billion annual trade deficit with China as a key test of his "America First" trade strategy. The country's Commerce Ministry said China will apply tariffs on U.S. goods at the "same scale and the same strength".

Other unlucky users were unable to use either function in the app.

For the routing and navigation issue, Apple says it now affects all users, and has been identified since 5:48AM PDT.

However, CarPlay doesn't support third-party apps, so those users are out of luck for now.
