Apple iPhone owners will once again be able to utilise the Google Maps navigation tool, as it is now available for download through iTunes.
The app was once pre-installed on the American manufacturer's handsets, along with tools such as Safari, YouTube and Stocks.
However, as the rivalry between the technology industry leaders increased, Apple chose to remove Google-made apps from its operating system.
When users upgraded to iOS 6 or bought an iPhone 5, they were instead greeted with an Apple Maps replacement.
However, this was not well-received due to a number of bugs and errors, and chief executive Tim Cook published a letter advising customers to use alternatives.
Australian police recently warned drivers about the dangers of using Apple Maps – many drivers had found themselves stranded after following incorrect directions.
Users can install Google Maps and utilise what many consider a superior navigation tool for free by visiting the App Store.
