Apple’s new iOS Maps mistakes the names of oceans, asks you to jump off a bridge

0. phoneArena 13 Jun 2012, 09:09 posted on

Apple’s new Maps application in iOS 6 is... new. So new that we haven’t seen much of it yet, but developers who are most eager to try it out have already found some minor mistakes…

This is a discussion for a news. To read the whole news, click here

Expect more of these kinds of stories as iOS v. 6 sees the light of day. Remember all of the stories that developed after the covers were removed from Siri?

iOS 6 hasn't even come out yet. I could see if this was in the final release, but my God, is it really a big deal at this moment? Pretty much given up on this site. There is no decent conversation anymore. I don't even think you guys come here for phone news...just to trash Apple.

The funniest thing of all...look at the front page. Most comments are on Apple topics. It's like you guys don't really even care about Android to talk about it.

Oh well...enjoy guys. It's been real.

Jeff, you know I'd hate to see you go. I've taken a few breaks from PA myself, but what I always try to do(sometimes very unsuccessfully) is ignore the flame bait. There are going to be people who just flat out HATE Apple or HATE Android/Google on just about every tech site, just different user names.

So is SIRI in iOS 5, but people still use it like a finished product

That still doesn't mean it's not in beta. How people use it is irrelevant.

Beta my ass. Beta releases are limited in scope so beta testers are able to identify bugs for fixing before release to the mass market. Any other use of the term "beta" by anyone is disingenuous and only covering up product fallacies. All products are continuously being upgraded and updated so we may as well slap a beta disclaimer on absolutely everything.
Siri, being integrated into iOS, is no beta product.

Hey it's not the final release though. Plus it's tom tom that's powering the new maps. It's something they will fix hopefully...

Im so perplexed ryt now. I thought Apple doesnt hype on somethin unless it works. Apple doesnt release anything to nobody unless it works

Can we stop makin xcuses for Apple, for once. Google maps took years to get to where it is now, how can Apple have top of the range maps whn Nokia, google and the rest have bn in d business for like, ever?

I just think it will get updated in the final release. But yeah I agree, google maps is the best, and Nokia maps is pretty good. All I was saying is not just apple it's TomTom's directions.

It's not released yet, right? I would hope Apple would have most bugs worked out by release.

Now, if it releases in this condition, I'll join everyone in a good laugh at Apple.
