Google Maps for iOS now has a night mode

There aren't many areas where Apple Maps has an edge over Google Maps, but one of them has been the inclusion of a night mode with darker graphics that are easier to read after sunset. As of yesterday, that advantage is gone. Google Maps has added a night mode to its iOS app, making the app automatically switch to a darker color palette when giving directions at night. It's a small but handy update that should make Google Maps more useable for people with iPhones. As for people on Android, they've had a night mode in Google Maps for years.
