I was surprised by how out of date Apple maps were. I guess TomTom doesn't update their data that much.

In the UK Apple maps is superior in one important way: it knows about road closures. Google maps here still doesn't seem to take into account planned closures, which are published by the council, so often it'll direct you right into a roadblock.

(Reading the article, Apple sources data from TomTom, which probably explains why they have good up-to-date satnav information.)
