10 fails found in Apple Maps

It looks like iPhone and iPad owners aren't happy with the new Apple Maps, which replaces Google Maps in iOS 6. We cannot blame them, given the number of flaws that have been exposed already, such as the inaccurate or incomplete information and poorer imaging data when compared to Google's alternative...

Anyone living close to the destination the Apple map spots? Can you see if there is any 'apple' tree somewhere around the spot. :D

Yeah... talk about Apple who does not deliver unfinished-buggy products... right
They don't even have the decency like Google of putting a "beta" in the title

Its because they are holding the phone wrong.

I actually really like the iPhone 5, but this isn't a very good thing for Apple.
:/ Hope they fix this.

This is horrible, like the article says, some errors are understandable but these are big issues that cannot be overlooked.

I foresee that the improvements will come to iPhone 5S, which they will claim as a major innovation for the next iPhone. Classic Apple.

Or Steve jobs will rise from his grave and say you are not using it correctly.

I could already see it now, reports saying people had driven off cliffs and into lakes and blaming it on they're iPhone! "my iPhone told me to drive there so I did"

iRay S. where are you now? Your beloved iOS needs you to defend it from this epic failure! For all the people here in PA, you are the only one who truly understands the greatness of iOS 6. Please enlighten us with your fanboyish and biased wisdom and tell us that this is not true!!!

Apple should have made sure their replacement was mature enough before cutting ties with Google. Now they've left their users with an incomplete system.

incomplete it should not have passed alpha testing forget about Closed beta and open Beta tests

Disagree.... I now see more users flocking back to using Google Maps after giving this a try; even though it Gmaps is no longer intergrated.

"Ahh, i wonder how Apple would do that, with their superior, meticulous, almost religious devotion to perfection!"

downloading google earth from the app store should solve this problem.....apple may take some time to fix these bugs and add new features/

In Manchester, England it labels an area the Gay Village. I've got no issue with that as that's what the area is called, but (as far as I'm aware) it's not an official name for the area it's just what people call that area. Are maps allowed to label areas by what local residents call them or should they go by their official names?

In that case it's time to rename cupertino to "Baristaville"
