Problems appeared around 7am PT/10am ET, resulting in errors when users searched for route directions and for specific locations.

While Apple Maps was riddled with bugs and poor data upon its launch in 2012, the service's search and navigation features have rarely stopped working.

Those trying to get directions using Apple Maps are receiving a message that reads, "Directions Not Available".

Apple Maps is now suffering from an outage, as users are unable to get search results and also navigation directions, in Canada, the US and beyond.

According to Apple's System Status page on the web, it says there's an issue with Maps, specifically routing and navigation and search.

Apple confirmed the problem in a tweet. Apple is now investigating the issue, but there's no word on when we will see the Maps app fully functioning again.

The Down Detector Maps showed Apple Maps was down mostly in the US with little to no outages reported in the United Kingdom.

The outages affect all forms of Apple Maps, including those on Apple Watches and in vehicles with CarPlay, for users across the US, Canada, and other countries. Issues like this will just make users continue to jump over to Google Maps and stick with the latter.
