Well this could be an interesting – and very welcomed – turn of events. Drastically missing from iOS 6 was Google Maps. This wasn’t included as Apple decided to release their own maps app, which has suffered numerous errors and frustration by millions of users for providing poor images and directions.
Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, acknowledged their failure and stated “we fell short…we are extremely sorry for the frustration.” Cook gave some alternatives, but didn’t give the nod to Google Maps. Over the past month there’s been rumours that we’d see Google Maps re-appear on iOS and according to a report by All Things D, Google is set to release Maps for iOS tonight. Both Google and Apple declined to comment on the rumour and nothing yet has popped up in the App Store.
