Amsterdam-based TomTom will keep providing data to Apple for use in its Maps app. TomTom revealed the news in an extremely brief press release:

TomTom has renewed and extended its global agreement with Apple for maps and related information. No further details of the agreement will be provided.

This news comes on the heels of Apple "confirming" on Sunday that it has acquired GPS company Coherent Navigation, in an apparent move to improve its mapping technology.
