The high court's decision not to hear the case leaves intact a March 2014 ruling by the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, which threw out a district judge's finding that Google had not infringed on four different patents. The case will now return to lower courts for further proceedings.

Vederi sued Google in 2010. The company says Google infringed on its patents, which concern ways of creating images of a geographical area that can be navigated by computer.

Street View is a product that enables users to navigate images of streets created from a series of photographic images taken by cameras positioned on the top of cars. The Obama administration, responding to a request from the court for its views, asked the justices not to take the case.

Apple Inc recently finally added the public transit directions to its Maps. Company's software VP Craig Federighi announced the long-awaited feature, which covers bus, ferry, subway, and train routes, on stage at Apple's WWDC keynote.

In the United States, launch cities will include Baltimore, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Washington DC. Transit directions will also be available internationally in London, Toronto, and Berlin.

iOS 9 will give Apple Maps users the ability to receive public transit directions, restoring core functionality that Apple's mobile operating system lost when the company replaced Google Maps with its own software in 2012.

Apple's iOS 9 scheduled to be released later this year and will be available for update on all iPhones, iPads and iPods. iOS 9 is full of enhancements and adds new multitasking features to devices.

Siri can do more than ever, and new proactive suggestions help users get things done before they ask. The operating system enhances performance, battery life, and security.
