The iPhone X came out almost a month ago, and now one of the most anticipated app updates has finally arrived for the new phone: Google has updated Maps for the iPhone X’s screen.

Now we just need a UI update

The sprawling maps do look pretty nice on the new iPhone, although Google may need to rethink its UI a bit for the taller screen. The company took a few extra weeks for what should have been a day one update, but it didn’t use that time to change any of the basic interfaces for the new phone. That means that the search bar is much higher up than on the older version of the app, and the hamburger menu that opens up the left pane for additional options is practically unreachable with one hand now.

Still, it’s better than nothing, I guess. The update is available now from the iOS App Store.
