While Apple’s new Maps app has raised quite a bit of controversy for what is being viewed as a downgraded experience compared to the old Google-powered iOS Maps, there are a few locations Apple might have to censor imagery rather than improve. After Turkish website Sosyalmedya claimed Apple threatened national security by releasing high-resolution imagery of a prison normally censored in Google’s maps, The Verge investigated to see what other sensitive locations Apple does not censor. To be fair, Nokia’s maps also show high-quality imagery of many locations that Google’s chooses to obscure. You can see the full comparison on The Verge, which includes a maximum-security prison on Imrali Island, Turkey, a NATO airbase in Geilenkirchen, Germany, and Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland.
