Apple to let users send Maps directions from OS X to iPhone, sync notifications between platforms


Apple announced today that it will bring its controversial Maps app to OS X Mavericks, the newest version of its desktop operating system. With requisite features like Flyover, it will allow users to look up 3D maps and directions.

The biggest improvement, though, is the ability to synchronize directions to iPhones using iCloud. iPhone users will see directions show up, like Passbook, on their iPhone home screens.

Apple is also adding notifications synchronization between iOS and OS X using iCloud, too.
