Apple has reportedly acquired two companies in the areas of mapping and note-taking as part of the company’s ‘strategic acquisitions’ as pointed by CEO Tim Cook.

The tech giant has purchased BroadMap, which specializes in managing and analyzing mapping data, an area where Apple has struggled with in the past.

The other company is called Catch, an Evernote competitor that was acquired by Apple in the last few months, Cnet reports.

According to the report, during the company’s fourth-quarter earnings conference call, Cook had said that the company had made 15 ‘strategic acquisitions’ this year and BroadMap and Catch appear to be part of that list.
