To all those who mock Apple and its maps, remember that Nokia and Google had to start somewhere as well. Google Maps was rubbish when it first appeared.
And to those who think Nokia and Google should charge, you clearly have not looked at iTunes. There are plenty of similar FREE apps that do just the same thing, just as well
Kenswiss, 28 Sep 2012I need compensation! this morning apple maps' turn by turn navigation led me into the grand canyon I was thinking more of Death Valley. Lol.
Well this is funny
Doesn't Apple have a case against Google ?
what a turn out eh haha
I have to say, this is uncharacteristic of Apple. I honestly cannot recall Apple apologising for any misdeeds or mistakes in over 5 years. Though apologising is a very hard thing to do, it is the right thing to do. This is humble and humane. We all make mistakes. Right move.
APPLE- focus on needs of customers and future and NOT NONSENSICAL PATENTS wars .. APPLE as worlds biggest corp ought to LEAD. we appeal to APPLE . N bring devices retail costs down please ..
They dont apologize for scratching and bad material used on the phone and they say its NORMAL to have ugly scratched phone, but they apologize for the map.. I love apple but this issue makes me having a big hesitation to upgrade to iphone 5 which i love to!
I am actually getting to like Tim Cook, albeit for all the wrong reasons, as everytime he opens his mouth he just seems to put his foot further in to it!
Anonymous, 28 Sep 2012apple maps is still superior to google and nokia, just like ios its still the bestU really think so? Or you really like getting bashed by 100s here? How drunk and blinded are you?
So What Tim is really saying stop bugging us and just use something else instead. Now, apart from the obvious isssue with that statement, there is another one. Originally Apple said it would get better as more an more people used it but Tim has just as good as told us not to use it, so how will it improve? If I were an iPhone user I think I would swap out phone for a competitors device not just the the maps!
It takes years to master what Google has achieved so far.
neversaysorry, 28 Sep 2012APOLOGY!!!??? Tim cook will kill Apple - when the death grip fiasco came out Steve Jobs did no... moreJobs was a very difficult person, it may be good for apple to have less arrogance on the top. It was just not allowed to say anything bad about Jobs, coz he had cancer (bad excuse actually), and then after that because he was dead, so one just had to shut up about him. Now he is cold and more, so we can finally say that he was everything except an easy person. But then again, very smart people are usually eccentric and weird, same with Jobs.

Google should freeze'em out! Block everything, search engine, Youtube, Maps, and e-mail... Let's see what Apple is really about. They take stuff from the free Android System and then they have the nerve to sue other companies for stuff like pinch-to-zoom, or bouncing menu! =)))) LAAAAME!!! P.S Thank for inventing the rectangle shape Apple, if it weren't for you, I don't know how Phones would have looked like! =))))
