In response to heavy criticism over Apple’s new Maps software included with the launch of iOS 6, Apple has released a statement explaining that the company is working hard to makes things better. Google has also recently submitted their own native maps app to the App Store, so the fruit company has to fix things fast, or its Maps may be a bust.
”Customers around the world are upgrading to iOS 6 with over 200 new features including Apple Maps, our first map service,” said spokeswoman Trudy Miller. “We are excited to offer this service with innovative new features like Flyover, turn by turn navigation, and Siri integration. We launched this new map service knowing it is a major initiative and that we are just getting started with it. Maps is a cloud-based solution and the more people use it, the better it will get. We appreciate all of the customer feedback and are working hard to make the customer experience even better.”
What’s more, AllThingsD has reported that the Apple developers assigned to Maps is “on lockdown” trying to fix the bugs and glitches consumers have been reporting about Maps the last 24 hours.
