The app is getting a lot of complaints due to the high level of inaccuracies.
Acc. to The Verge, CEO of Apple Tim Cook had issued an apology to users of iOS 6, and recommend alternatives to the Maps app till Apple fixes it.
In his statement, Tim Cook said, “We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better…While we’re improving Maps, you can try alternatives by downloading map apps from the App Store like Bing, MapQuest and Waze, or use Google or Nokia maps by going to their websites and creating an icon on your home screen to their web app”.
Apple had released a statement to AllThingsD considering the problems that the company was facing for the new iOS6 Maps application.
Acc. to the statement,“We are excited to offer this service with innovative new features like Flyover and Siri integration, and free turn by turn navigation. We launched this new map service knowing that it is a major initiative and we are just getting started with it. We are continuously improving it, and as Maps is a cloud-based solution, the more people use it, the better it will get. We’re also working with developers to integrate some of the amazing transit apps in the App Store into iOS Maps. We appreciate all of the customer feedback and are working hard to make the customer experience even better.”
