It’s essential to make sure that your business can be found on local search, especially if you’re a small company. Searching for local businesses is often the first step for many customers looking for a product or service. For this reason, it’s important to ensure that your business is visible on local searches. As specialists in marketing and web design in Surrey, here is a quick guide to apple business listings. 

How to Claim Your Apple Business Listing 

Firstly, to claim your Apple Maps business listing, you must go to Apple Maps Connect. Often, there will already be a listing for your business. However, it will likely be unpersonalised and lacking specific information.

To claim a listing, you will need an apple ID associated with your business. You will need to set one up if you haven’t got one already. Then, you can follow on-screen prompts that will help you claim or add a business. 

You will be asked to select your relationship to your business; are you the owner or do you have authorisation by the business owner? You will also be asked to verify a business telephone number. Following this, you will need to confirm your business location and hours of work. You will also be given the option to link your company website and social media accounts.

After taking these steps, you will be able to review your business information and confirm. Your new listing will then appear in Apple Map results usually within a week. 

How To Update Your Apple Map Business Listings 

It’s important to note that Apple Maps listings and interface are not as developed or customisable as Google. For example, you cannot have multiple admins for your business as it’s tied to your Apple ID number. However, you can still have multiple locations associated with your Apple ID. You do have control over some basic information. However, you cannot manage any business photos or any customer reviews may be absent. This information such as photos will be sourced from platforms such as Yelp and Trip Advisor. Thus, in order to optimise your Apple Business listing fully, you will need to ensure these platforms are fully optimised too. 


Apple Business listings is an invaluable tool that can help your business reach new customers and generate more leads locally. However, in order to get the most out of your Apple Business listings, you will need to make sure that your listing is set up and optimised effectively. You will also need to make sure that platforms such as Tripadvisor and Yelp are optimised as Google will use these for many of your business images.
