On the iPhone 5, which went on sale Friday, the popular Google Maps app was replaced with Apple’s own maps software. Inaccuracies and misplaced towns and cities in Apple’s new map software have provoked anger from users.
Apple’s decision to replace Google Maps with its own iOS 6 app has triggered a wave of criticism from iPhone owners. Thousands have complained of misplaced labels for businesses and landmarks as well as missing roads and, in some cases, entire towns. Perhaps even worse, others have reported errors such as rivers being split in half and the misplacement of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.
