Apple Maps is Google's competing map service and runs flawlessly on Macs and iPhones. However, Apple has not provided the service for use on a PC or Android devices. However, it is still possible to use Apple Maps without iOS or macOS via detours. You can find out which trick you can use to do this in this article.

How to use Apple Maps on the PC or on Android devices

To use Apple Maps on your PC or Android device, you need to use a browser . Which one that is exactly is up to you. You don't need another app. To access Apple Maps, we use the search platform DuckDuckGo , which has integrated Apple's map service. Just follow these steps to get Apple Maps through DuckDuckGo:

  1. Visit the DuckDuckGo search engine and enter any location .
  2. Navigate to the " Maps " tab . Now the location you are looking for is loaded via the integrated Apple Maps.
  3. To start a route, use the " Directions " button . This opens the route function with the fastest route. Note that there is no navigation function included here.
  4. To find another location, enter the name in the search bar at the top and click the magnifying glass icon . This sets a new pin.

Apple's map service can be used with the DuckDuckGo search engine, but many important functions are missing.

With DuckDuckGo you can use Apple Maps on every computer and Android smartphone, but the range of functions is drastically limited. If you also get along well with Google Maps, you should better use this map service. Apple Maps only works perfectly when using its own operating systems.
