Businesses Can Now Claim Apple Maps Listings From iOS Devices (UPDATED)

|

With the iOS 8.3 update released today, businesses can now claim their Apple Maps business listing via iOS devices . Here’s how it works:

Search for the business in the Apple Maps app, click on the “i” icon next to the map pin to see the business’ profile. Then click on the “Report a Problem” link:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the bottom of the Report a Problem screen, click on the “Claim This Business” link:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You then get a pop-up dialog message that says you will need to verify ownership of the business:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When you click “Confirm,” you are taken to the login screen for Apple Maps Connect in the mobile Safari browser where you will need to either login or register with an AppleID to get in.

Once in Apple Maps Connect, you should be taken through the normal phone verification system, but it appears that there are still some kinks to be worked out:


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Update:
This feature also is now available on desktops with OS X Yosemite version 10.10.3. Just click on the Report a Problem button on any unclaimed business profile:

    Hey Walter,

    This update appears to be only on iOS devices. I would expect it to show up on the Apple Maps desktop app some time later this year.

    Spoke too soon. Looks like this is now on desktop as well. See update above.
