Small Bussiness and Indoor – new tools from Apple.
Apple Map is now editable from every one using Small Business.
iBeacon has now a place to publish it’s location using Indoor.
Those services are not Apps.
Both sevices are accessibles by connecting to Apple Map Connect with your Apple ID.
Small Business enables you to publish in the Apple Maps App. It’s a tool that gives businesses more control of its listings in the Apple Map database. It allows small business owners to edith by adding street addresses, phone numbers, hours of operations, and more.
Indoors enables businesses to order, implement and maintain iBeacons, under the condition that they have traffic at least 1 million visitors per year. This service for the moment is not for every one.
Here’s the conditions for Indoors:
- Accessible to the general public
- Annual visitors in excess of 1 million per year
- Availability of complete, accurate, and scaled reference maps
- Enabled with Wi-Fi throughout
