Released yesterday, iOS 6 brought a number of improvements to Apple’s mobile operating system. One improvement is a brand-new Maps app that Apple made in-house – but unfortunately, users found a lot of issues with the app, or didn’t find anything at all, as some features were missing. Those that were there – like directions and the locations of various items – were likely buggy.
Luckily, Apple has heard its fans’ cries and has issued a statement regarding the missing or broken features:
“Customers around the world are upgrading to iOS 6 with over 200 new features including Apple Maps, our first map service. 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 the AllThingsD report, Apple has put its Maps team on a lockdown until the bugs are fixed and features added.
I have used Apple’s new Maps app on my iPad already, and in my testing, I already found that there were more than a few bugs and “mislocations.” Hopefully the team at Apple will get everything fixed in a timely manner.
How has the new Maps app been treating you?
