Apple addresses concerns about iOS 6 Maps app

Ever since the launch of iOS 6 this past Wednesday, users have been complaining about one major new feature in the software update: Maps. Apple ditched Google Maps in iOS 6 in favor of an in-house solution, but that hans’t come without bugs and imagery issues. The new Maps app has been criticized for missing features, incorrect directions, and distorted imagery.

According to a report from AllThingsD, Apple has issued a statement concerning the Maps app, confirming that the app is a work in progress.

“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.”
