New Find My iPhone beta replaces Google Maps with Apple Maps
posted by Alan F. / Jul 08, 2014, 11:57 AM
As we recently told you, Apple has been updating its mapping service daily, at around midnight EDT, in order to improve the application. The company has also been seeking new API engineers for Apple Maps, hinting at upcoming improvements to the system.
While those using the regular version of iCloud will still see their beloved handset tracked on Google Maps, soon that will change. Hopefully, whoever has your iPhone doesn't decide to take it to the Australian Outback.

Yea but that is because Google started mapping when it was a humble start up that wanted to change the world. Apple started mapping when it was a giant douche bag which claimed it could do no wrong. I don't know about you, but I'm more willing to give the former a second chance rather than the latter.

I actually think it's pretty accurate. Apple is despised by so many people not because of their products, which are really quite good, but because of their attitude. They always seem to come across as arrogant and snobby. Not a particularly likeable combination.
