Apple using banner ad within 3D maps to advertise
We will keep this short and sweet; we are calling out to all Phones Review readers to let us know if they are seeing any Apple advertisements showing up in the Maps app.
We received an email via a Phones Review reader named Chris Leonard who sent us the photo above, which shows an Apple banner ad within Apple Maps using 3D. The ad showed up whilst searching for Birmingham, England and you can clearly see a huge banner advert splattered across a building advertising the Apple iPad.
Phones Review decided to check this out and we can confirm this is indeed true and not an April Fools joke, as usual we get sent so many emails on April 1st so we wanted to see if this was true or just a prank, and it is indeed true.
Do we really want Apple ads showing up when we search for directions within Apple Maps when using 3D Satellite? Please let us know if you find another Apple ad, we would like to know what area you see them in?
