The most criticized point of the iPhone 5 is related to iOS 6 and replacing Google Maps with Apple Maps that have proven to bring many errors, too simple, too few features. There were also some big leaks in the application.
Naturally Apple has to pull to provide a similar experience with Google Maps that have reached a very high level of detail over a period of time, lasting longer. The Cupertino based company started to build a team increasingly larger and already the first positive results can be observed.
Changes made by Apple are visible in regions like Honolulu, Hawaii, San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, New York, London. The Statue of Liberty in New York now appears in Apple Maps, it was a symbol of the United States which escaped the cartographer’s attention that worked on the Apple software.
The idea would be that Apple wants to offer a competitive solution and the results are visible. Know that Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, apologized for how the navigation solution, offered by the company he runs, works and I suspect that they made this a priority. In time, a few months or a few years Apple Maps maybe will not be so criticized and on the contrary, it will be appreciated.
