Apple Maps failing horribly all over the world
Apple clearly think they’re a bunch of know-it-alls when it comes to the old mapping game. As part of their new, so-called ‘iOS 6’ software, they’ve ditched the tried and trusted Google Maps and pumped their own maps into it, in conjunction with TomTom.
In short, it’s a shambles. Compare and contrast this area of Dubai, shown in Google Maps at the top and with the Apple version underneath.
Fortunately, there’s already a blog aimed at highlighting the many, MANY mapping cock-ups that are driving iOS 6 users round the bend at the moment (just not the bend they were expecting to be driven round because the map says it’s three east of where it actually is).
Oooh look – Tahiti’s gone all… pointy…
And is THIS what Planet Earth looks like now that Apple has mapped it?
Is there a deeper meaning to all of this? Are we all being slowly killed by iOS 6? To be fair, we were asking for it…
