Hidden iOS 8 Icons Reveal That Apple is Working on a Way to Locate Your Parked Car

Hidden iOS 8 icons found by 9to5mac reveal that Apple is working on a Maps feature that would help you find your parked car.

While this feature was not introduced in the first build of iOS 8, the icons show that the feature was being actively worked on during the development of the mobile OS. iOS 8 was rumored to launch with many new Mapping features, including transit directions and improved data, but none of enhancements made it to the first build.

We assume Apple would use GPS along with the M7 co-processor to help track movements from and to your vehicle to help you locate it quickly.

Yesterday, a repot revealed just why iOS 8 never saw that Maps upgrade it needs. Thanks to developers leaving, poor management, and internal politics, we may not see an maps upgrade until later.

In addition to this hidden icon, a transit icon surfaced yesterday in a WWDC session video that hinted at the possibility of Transit Directions coming to iOS 8.

It is unclear if these features will make the final iOS 8 build, as Apple does sometimes save a couple features until the GM release.

Instead of WASTING time, money, and effort, duplicating a number of apps that already exist, Apple should focus on fixing MAPS!

Instead of the gimmicks lies and bitching, relax and give it time! There was a reason apple didn't have time for maps yet and there are so many products there's eventually going to be fixes on those to but still, give it time, besides my maps works perfectly fine for me.

Hey genius, maybe apple could make this to go with bug fixes, makes sense now? Good.

Yes give them some time. It's really require hell a lot a time to copy maps. So be patient. Once they copy google map properly then they will update their maps. It's just about time and a perfect "copier"
