Apple Issues Statement Relating To iOS 6 Maps
Apple’s iOS 6 features a new version of Maps, previously on the iPhone and other iOS devices the Maps app was basically Google Maps, this was replaced with Apple’s own Maps application on Wednesday when iOS 6 was released.
A number of iOS 6 users have criticized the new Maps application, over missing features and problems, and now Apple has released a statement about its new Maps app to the guys over at AllThingsD.
“Customers around the world are upgrading to iOS 6 with over 200 new features including Apple Maps, our first map service,” said spokeswoman Trudy Miller. “We are excited to offer this service with innovative new features like Flyover, turn by turn navigation, and Siri integration. We launched this new map service knowing it is a major initiative and that we are just getting started with it. Maps is a cloud-based solution and the more people use it, the better it will get. We appreciate all of the customer feedback and are working hard to make the customer experience even better.”
According to AllThingsD, the developer team for Apple’s iOS 6 Maps is apparently ‘under lockdown’ in an attempt to fix the various issues with the new Maps app.
