Apple Maps - iOS 7
Up until now, Apple has only displayed customer reviews and other points of interest in Apple Maps from Yelp. However, the company seems to have expanded its sources to include reviews from TripAdvisor and as well.

The Cupertino company has not made any formal announcement about this change, and does not attribute the new sources in the Maps acknowledgement page as well.
Apple launched Maps back in 2012 to disastrous public reviews. Since then, the company has worked steadily on improving its mapping service by improving its coverage and adding 3D imagery for key places around the world. Based on Apple minivans that have been spotted quite a few times in the United States, it is likely that the company is working on bringing Google Street View like functionality to Apple Maps in the near future as well.
