John Gruber:

Google wasn’t trying to bolster Android by withholding turn-by-turn and vector tiles from iOS.

They were withholding those features as a negotiating tactic to get Apple to integrate iOS Maps further with Google’s services.

I really don’t mind the fact that Apple stood up to Google to protect our privacy.

You shouldn’t either.
