Apple Maps is now suffering from an outage, as users are unable to get search results and also navigation directions, in Canada, the United States of America and beyond.

For the routing and navigation issue, Apple says it now affects all users, and has been identified since 5:48AM PDT.

According to Apple's System Status page on the web, it says there's an issue with Maps, specifically routing and navigation and search. But starting early this morning, Apple Maps has been broken in the sense that it isn't working at all.

Some users said they could search for locations, but that the app wouldn't load any route information.

Apple Maps has a reputation for being "broken", in the sense that it will send you to a place far from where you want to go.
