Apple Maps is recruiting your help to update their map data.

After finally launching Apple Maps Connect they want local businesses to claim their listings.  This service for local businesses allows business owners the ability to update and add their business listing information that appears directly on Apple Maps.

Because this service is intended for small business owners, and not SEO agencies the best method to approach this claiming this process is to use your existing Apple ID or create a new one for your business. This way you will be able to quickly and easily add content directly to Apple Maps.


As is typical with Apple and their design team, Apple Connect is an instant hit with auto repair shop owners because it is easy and has very simple steps to claim, update and verify your auto repair shop's local map listing. You just sign in with your Apple ID (or create one if you don’t have one), search for your business in Apple’s database and verify that you are either the owner with an easy phone verification.

Now that this service is available here is some of the information you will be able to update in Apple Maps Connect:

  • Business Name
  • Phone Number
  • Address
  • Service Hours
  • Exact Map Location
  • Categories (e.g. auto repair shops, tires, oil changes, etc.)
  • Website & Social URLs
