Dutch navigation systems company TomTom announced that it has renewed and extended its global agreement with Apple for maps and related information. TomTom did not release details of the latest deal between the two companies.
TomTom has licensed digital maps to Apple since 2012, when it beat Google to supply the built-in mapping apps in Apple products, starting with the iPhone 6.
Apple is also considered as a candidate buyer for Nokia's digital mapmaking arm HERE, as the Finish company reviews strategic options for its mapping technology.
Uber along with a group of German carmakers are also interested in HERE.
