Google on Friday sent out press invites for a Maps event in San Francisco next week. The event will be hosted by Brian McClendon, vice president google is to unveil the “next dimension” of Google Maps on Wednesday 6 June just days ahead of Apple’s WWDC conference where it is widely expected the company will announce it is dropping Google Maps from the iPhone and iPad.

Google Maps and Google Earth, who will give a “behind-the-scenes” look at the “next dimension” of the company’s Map service, hinting at a new 3D mapping feature. Apple is reportedly planning to drop Google Maps from its devices and as BGR exclusively reported earlier this week, is expected to debut its own 3D maps service at its WWDC on June 11th. Google’s event is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. PST on June 6th.

Whether Apple does end up opting for its own mapping solution over Google’s mapping data is yet to be seen, however, for many sites it seems it is easy to forget sometimes that people use other phones and other operating systems.

Android users we are sure, will be waiting with excitement as to what new features will be announced and when they will be coming to their phone.
