Apple is solving the maps problem

A good news. Apple CEO Tim Cook admitted that rectifying Maps would be an ongoing process and that data will improve as more customers use it.

Apple has begun correcting the many inaccuracies and visual anomalies found in its new Maps app. Reports indicate that several of the most glaring mistakes — satellite images showing a distorted Brooklyn Bridge and missing Statue of Liberty among them — have quietly been fixed today. Just one week ago, Apple CEO Tim Cook issued a public apology to customers for delivering a Maps application he said "fell short" of the company's penchant for producing first-rate software. Cook said Apple would be working "non-stop" to improve the user experience; today's updates are the first discernible changes we've seen since the launch of iOS 6.

Plenty of outstanding issues remain, however, with international territories in particular affected by major flaws and less comprehensive mapping data compared to Google Maps.

  1. Awesome blog post.The information you've been wrote is too good to us and it's deeply appreciated, many thanks. We would state Apple Maps application has been praised because of its good look but criticized because of its lack of local transit recommendations. Using Google Maps is better compared to Apple Maps and even more comprehensive.
