The spokesperson for DuckDuck Go does not reveal the procedure of the privacy work regarding the Apple maps. They deny sharing the information about the new venture. The spokesperson, under further questioning, has also said that under the new conjoined system, the infrastructure of the system will remain the same, with Apple Maps working the same that is always has, but with DuckDuckGo adapting itself to fit Apple Maps into the interface.

We all know that Google Maps still remains the very authority on satellite map systems, as their accuracy and quality of service still remain the very best. Over the years, Google Maps has become known as the very standard by which all other mapping systems are judged. But, one cannot say that Apple has not been doing their very best. These last few months, Apple employees have been working overtime trying to catch up with the quality of Google Maps, and while they are still far away, they have become far better than what they previously were, and now provide a much better quality of service to its users.
