Apple's Maps Connect service for small businesses has expanded to Italy, Mexico, and Switzerland.

Maps Connect allows small business owners to edit data about their business for Apple Maps, such as address and hours of operation. The hope is to make Maps a more accurate service for finding local businesses.

Apple first rolled the Maps Connect service out in the U.S., but it has since come to Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, and the U.K. With today's additions of Italy, Switzerland, and Mexico, Maps Connect is now available in 12 countries.
