Unlock the power of Apple Maps

Apple Maps is the best way to navigate and explore the world. MapKit lets you bring the world’s most detailed city experiences from Apple Maps to your apps and websites, all with a focus on privacy. The Maps Server API enables you to create more functional experiences across platforms, and SwiftUI lets you easily integrate Maps into your apps.

What’s new

MapKit and MapKit JS offer powerful new ways for you to integrate Maps into your apps and websites.

  • Showcase the places your users care about most with the all-new Place Card API.
  • Quickly and easily access the places that are relevant to your app or website with Place ID.
  • Integrate Maps into your websites with no coding required with the new Embed API.
  • Get more robust and relevant results than ever with the improved Search capability, which includes search pagination, bounding box filters, and more.


Use MapKit to give your apps a sense of place. Load Apple Maps directly into app windows and views, add annotations and overlays to call out points of interest, and offer text-completion to make it easier for people to search for a destination.

MapKit JS lets you embed interactive maps directly into your websites across platforms and operating systems, including macOS, Windows, and Android. Like MapKit for apps, you can also add annotations and overlays to the map to call out points of interest or user destinations.

Maps Server API

Create efficiencies across platforms for a variety of Apple Maps features, such as geocoding, search, and estimated time of arrival. The Maps Server API uses REST principles to increase performance, lower data usage, and improve battery life.
