Move Google Maps to Maps

Apple Maps in iOS 13 has Lists similar to Google Maps but the Apple app is simplified and doesn’t have as many features as the Google app. It does have a simplified navigation voice, speed limit, lists can be shared, and more whitespace design.


  • Gmail, Calendar and Photos, keep as is for now. These take up space on iCloud.
