Well, this is the last weekend you have to relax and enjoy yourself before the ridiculous onslaught of holiday shopping and events consumes your every waking minute with errands and shopping and parties and decorating and trying to figure out how to wrap gifts and what to get and oh my we're getting a little excited (and a little exhausted) just thinking about it. Well, here's the week that was. Get at it. (Note, not Santa to our right.)
Could Apple have actually known about the deficiencies in the new iOS 6 Maps app well ahead of its launch? That's what six developers are claiming in a new report detailing how faults in Maps were called out months before its release.
Apparently, it's not just iOS 6 users who are unhappy with Apple's new Maps app -- a new report claims that the Taiwanese government is also up in arms over satellite imagery of a missile defense system there.
Before you write the new iOS 6-based Maps app off as a total loser, consider this: Its vector-based maps are actually capable of taking you further without an internet connection, thanks to automatic caching.
It's not quite the full-featured iOS app many of us have been hoping for, but Google has flipped the switch on its Street View feature for the mobile web app version of its own Maps solution, which now works on iOS.
Now that Apple CEO Tim Cook has publicly acknowledged the problem with the new iOS 6 Maps app, all eyes are on Cupertino as we wait to see how they'll fix the issues. Unfortunately, there may be no quick fix this time around.
A bit of a mixed bag this week as the news cycle recovers from the iPhone 5 launch. Hey, didn't Amazon do something that no one is talking about anymore? I guess now we batten down the hatches and see whatever became of all those iPad mini rumors. We're just shy of October when the drop is supposed to happen. Here's to waiting.
Under fire from complaints about the revamped Maps app the company released with iOS 6 last week, Apple CEO Tim Cook has posted a public apology -- and even recommends competing products "while we're improving Maps."
The iPhone 5 might be one of the most perfect pieces of technology ever assembled, but it’s taken more than its share of lumps for choosing to go its own way on two key features: mobile payments and maps. Competitors and critics have jumped at the opportunity to point out the handset’s so-called shortcomings, but unsurprisingly, none of it has slowed the iPhone 5’s assault on the record books.
