iPhone 5's Mapping Problem
One of the biggest and boldest move in the new iPhone 5 or iOS 6 update is the fact that Apple has clearly made its move away from Google's cloud services. The famous Google Maps (Albeit hasn't been updated for quite some time for iOS) is now yanked and an Apple-based Maps application comes by default.
Its funny because my blog entries have been far and few in between lately but one of the last entry was about this very move. Lo' and behold, news are now pouring about how buggy it is, below are just some of the news I have been reading:
Users say iPhone 5 maps app is lost, confused
Apple's iPhone 5 is great, but maps, iOS 6? Frustrating for some.
Why iOS 6 may leave some iPhone 5 buyers lost: Maps, YouTube
Apple's home-grown Maps leaves users lost
Wrong turn: Apple's buggy iOS 6 maps lead to widespread complaints
