Google has announced its Maps app update for Apple iPhone, making it easier to find places and look up saved friends' addresses.

Google Maps app, which will now include new search icons, can now be downloaded from the Apple App Store.

Now, users will be presented with icons for restaurants, coffee shops, bars and gas stations, which they can tap to search quickly for nearby locations.

In total, there are 13 different types of places users can search by, including hotels, hospitals and ATMs, ABC News reports.

The new update also makes it possible for users to look up their friends' addresses by typing their names in the search box, the report said.

If users have saved their friends' addresses in Google Contacts, the app will show them in the search results, it added.

This is the first major update to the Google Maps app since it was released in December.
