Google Maps Navigation, Gmail archives enroute to iPhone

updated 10:25 am EDT, Fri April 23, 2010

iPhone lags behind in support for Navigation tech

Google's Maps Navigation is still coming to the iPhone, the company has confirmed during a London press conference. The technology is an extension of the regular Maps app, adding free turn-by-turn directions for GPS-equipped phones. Navigation remains limited to Android phones at the moment, however, and Google says it still cannot say when the iPhone version will be ready, even months after the initial announcement.

The most likely timeframe for the upgrade is the introduction of iPhone 4.0, which should be ready this summer in tandem with a next-generation iPhone. The firmware appears to be receiving at least one Google-related update; reports say that within the Apple Mail client in iPhone 4.0 beta 2, Gmail messages can now be archived. A swipe command is used to trigger the option, just as one would use to delete a message.
