Apple is Hiring Software Engineers Experienced in Navigation Software

Apple has four identical job listings for software engineers experienced in developing navigation software.

AppleInsider suggests that this could mean Apple is planning to build its own navigation application for the iPhone.

The hires, and the mention of navigation software, could signal that Apple is gearing up to build its own personal navigation tools into the iOS mobile operating system. Apple's chief competitor in the mobile space, Google, introduced its own turn-by-turn software for Android devices over a year ago.

Apple's acquisition of Placebase and Poly9 would provide some of the technology needed to develop a navigation app for the iPhone.

You can apply for the job here.
