I actually use OsmAnd for offline use, at least on android, the version from f-droid, (there is a free and paid version in google play, in the f-droid there is a free version which is much less limited as far I know. I am sure that there are also other ways to access and use offline maps

Another way to get map data is to use the export feature in osm, but I haven't used it so much yet, I can download specific areas, but it is limited to 50000 nodes, small maps containing parts of a city may work, but even downloading all data for a larger city in one map doesn't work because of this limit. I think this depends a lot on the use case, if you are using the maps for things like offline navigation like I do, or if someone wants to develop something that uses offline data like the OsmAnd app, which is something where I don't have any experience, but I am sure that there a ways to download or generate data for such a use.
