Keep your paws off my Google Maps, Apple

In the iconic 1968 movie Planet of the Apes, Charlton Heston famously growled, "Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!" I now know how he felt. Per Salon, Apple’s new iOs 6 operating system — which it released with the new iPhone 5 — replaces the Google map app with its own. Bad move. Evidently, it is not "insanely great." iPhone 5 owners hate it because the Apple app is clearly inferior. Think I'll skip the upgrade and keep my iPhone 4.

  1. I found the very useful information. Apple replaced the Google Maps app with its own mapping service Apple Maps with the launch of iOS 6. iPhone 5 consumers who upgraded their devices have complained that Apple's new map service features has too many geographical errors, and is missing many of the Google Maps features.
