Does any other open PR do the same thing?

Checked open PRs for keywords 'docs' and 'documentationä. None found.

Not relevant.

What issue is this PR fixing?

None. This is a general improvement to the documentation.

How did you test this PR?

The PR does not contain executable code.

No executable code. However, I spent the entire day debugging the maps build for iOS and decided to share the lessons learned.

This PR contains updates for the installation guide:

  • Gave the installation documentation a good formatting scrub.
  • Revised the troubleshooting section
  • Documented clearly that the library ships with two map backends for iOS (was not clear to me).

Thanks for your good work!

Amazing job @keksipurkki, installation instructions are not very user-friendly now, especially for those, who are not very familiar with native mobile builds flow...
