Job listing suggests Apple planning to make Apple Maps available on other platforms as well

Apple is planning to make its mapping service – which is currently exclusive to iOS and OS X – available on all platforms via the Web, according to a job listing posted by the company last month.

First spotted by tech analyst Benedict Evans and titled Maps JavaScript Engineer, the listing seeks a web technology expert to help make maps work seamlessly on the web. “This role requires a deep knowledge of the JavaScript language, plus a solid understanding of the performance and compatibility issues that arise when delivering a cross-platform web solution,” its description said.

Apple Maps are currently only available on devices running iOS 6 and up, and OS X 10.9 Mavericks and up, It’s also worth mentioning that the Cupertino-based company’s iCloud service as well as the iWork productivity suite are already available in cross-platform browser-based versions.
