On opting for more results Apple maps will provide the address and local searches.
There was no previous information of Apple providing with such tools which will enable developers to embed their web apps. However, the company in the last conference announced the launch of MapKit JS for all the developers worldwide which was effectively utilised by DuckDuckGo. MapKit JS launched by Apple will provide an ease to all the developers to use the embed maps, add annotations and create custom pins to identify the places.

Before the tie up, DuckDuckGo used various services altogether for all their results. Even now Company will continue with various other providers particularly, however with Apple on board with them, their major focus will be on Apple Maps by making it a default source for maps and directions.
Apple Maps though quite popular still are a little rough when it comes to using the maps. Especially the interface can still be improved as it does not give a smooth feel when we scroll the mouse wheel to zoom in or out.
