Apple allow Google Maps back on to the iPhone
For the past few months, users of Apple devices have been falling in ditches, stumbling off the summit of rooftop car parks and becoming stranded in desolate fields, all thanks to the new mapping app that appeared in the most recent iOS update, replacing the sturdy, reliable Google one.
Keen travellers have been up in arms about it all ever since it happened but now everything is going to be okay again, as Google Maps has been cleared by Apple and is now available in the App Store for free.
Head Apple honcho Tim Cook apologised profusely when the Apple Maps service was found to be full of glitches and psychedelic imagery where locations should have been, and it seems that Apple have decided that they’d rather swallow their pride and let Google back into their phones rather than face further criticism.
We expect that Apple will now quietly set about making their own maps work properly and relaunch at some point rather than concede defeat to the Googlers.
