Google Maps SDK for iOS now supports Apple A7's 64-bit architecture
If you're an iOS developer who uses Google Maps in your apps, you're gonna like the latest Google Maps SDK for iOS.
Google Maps SDK for iOS version 1.6 adds full support for Apple's 64-bit A7 processor. This means Google's Maps can now take full advantage of the power of Apple's latest chip. Another nice new feature of the SDK is support for marker opacity, which allows developers to set the transparency of map markers that are displayed. Here's the full release notes:
- The Google Maps SDK for iOS now supports 64-bit architectures. Both 32- and 64-bit binaries are built into the single GoogleMaps framework. The correct binary will be selected by Xcode based on your build settings. For instructions on building 64-bit applications, please refer to Apple's 64-bit transition guide. (Issue 5806)
- Changed some instances of CGFloat to either a float or double where it was more appropriate.
- Added the ability to restrict min and max zoom on GMSMapView. (Issue 5882)

- Core Animation on GMSMapView now requires model values to be set
