The Apple iPhone 5 has garnered the recommendation of Consumer Reports, an organization which opinions on products are regarded highly by many consumers.
In a recent release, Consumer Reports says that the iPhone 5 is “a winner”.
“The Apple iPhone 5 is among the best smart phones in our Ratings and the best iPhone yet, our completed tests confirm,” Consumer Reports says.
Furthermore, the organization also said that the iOS 6 Maps, which has been criticized quite a lot recently, “is competent enough, even if it falls short of what’s available for free on many other phones.”
Google Inc. has added Street View to its maps feature for mobile browsers, enhancing the navigation service available to iPhone users who don’t have the tool built in to their handsets.
Users of Apple Inc.’s iPhone can get quick access to Street View, which offers panoramic images of locations, by saving a Web bookmark to the home screen of the phone, Mountain View, Calif.-based Google said on a blog post Thursday.
“Starting today, use Street View on your mobile browser to check out a new shop across town or get a feel for the ambiance at a restaurant before you arrive,” Google said.
