Apple to Feature Yelp Check-Ins Within IPhone Maps App

Apple Inc.’s coming iPhone map application will include Yelp Inc.’s “check-in” feature to let users broadcast their whereabouts to friends, according to materials Apple distributed to software developers.

Apple Maps, which will replace Google Inc. as the default location service in software set to debut later this year, will allow users to communicate through Yelp without exiting the map and opening a new app, the materials show.
