When we launched, a lot of it was all about directions and getting to a certain place.
Finding the place and getting directions to that place. That is building all of our own map data from the ground up.
Probe data is, according to Panzarino, "essentially little slices of vector data that represent direction and speed transmitted back to Apple completely anonymized with no way to tie it to a specific user or even any given trip.
It's reaching in and sipping a tiny amount of data from millions of users instead, giving it a holistic, real-time picture without compromising user privacy." So Apple isn't tracking every step of your trips from beginning to end.
