Apple has quietly started updating the messed up satellite imaginary (say missing Statue of Liberty) of places in the Apple Maps, that made a big fiasco in the consumer base.
Many were unable to accept the level of discrepancy in maps, including how the hell Can Apple can say to the world that this is the best mapping solution that users should use? The images literally showed the way, our world might look if doomsday is set to come true in the future. Even, our Hollywood directors may take some tips from the shown demography of places.
One week ago, Tim Cook issued a public apology for the messed up scenario and said that the maps will be getting better in future. Another debate that came to the limelight was the scale of work that needs to be implemented to bring the Apple maps detail to the level of Google maps.
Cook said that Apple would be working hard to fix the mess, and now it has been observed that Apple has fixed many of the messed up stuff, especially belonging to the New York City. This can be observed from the top image in the post. However, the changes are small and not of very use if you love to hover around as the data is unreliable as of now.
Tim Cook admitted that they can’t fix everything in a day, we already knew that for sure. One thing that I liked in Tim Cook apology for map fiasco was the honesty, in which he wasn’t shy of asking users to use third-party alternatives.
Google is speculated to be working on a special map app for iOS that is set be released by the end of this year. But earlier, Eric denied existence of any such upcoming app for iPhone, so it’s purely speculation or Google is having a good laugh at Apple and enjoying the existing scenario.
