Apple will reportedly tie Yelp directly into its upcoming iOS 6 Maps apps to let you share your whereabouts with other people.
Sneaking a peek at the the Apple developer kit doled out to programmers this month, Bloomberg uncovered screenshots of the Yelp check-in feature within the new Maps app.
Yelp helps users find and review local restaurants and other businesses. But the app's check-in feature lets you share your travels with others so they can spot your location and see which businesses you frequent.
You can also see where other people have gone, strangers as well as friends, and pick up reviews on those places.
Apple's integration of Yelp would allow people to share and view that information without having to leave the Maps app, according to Bloomberg's findings. Apple's new app is slated to replace Google Maps as the default on iOS devices and will offer.
An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment on the Yelp inegration to Bloomberg. CNET contacted Apple for comment and will update the story if we get more information.
