Tim Cook ber om ursäkt för de dåliga kartorna i IOS 6

i Samband med släppet utav IOS 6 valde Apple att utveckla en egen kartapplikation istället för att behålla Google Maps

Denna ändring har fått stark kritik ifrån många eftersom att man har upptäckt en hel del buggar i Apples egna kartapplikation.

Nu har dock Tim Cook, Apples VD, gått ut och bett om ursäkt för detta i ett öppet brev som publicerats på Apples hemsida. Han skriver bland annat att man kan ladda ner andra kartappar medan Apple förbättrar sina egna kartor. Här är hela brevet:To our customers,


At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers. With the launch of our new Maps last week, we fell short on this commitment. We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better.

We launched Maps initially with the first version of iOS. As time progressed, we wanted to provide our customers with even better Maps including features such as turn-by-turn directions, voice integration, Flyover and vector-based maps. In order to do this, we had to create a new version of Maps from the ground up.

There are already more than 100 million iOS devices using the new Apple Maps, with more and more joining us every day. In just over a week, iOS users with the new Maps have already searched for nearly half a billion locations. The more our customers use our Maps the better it will get and we greatly appreciate all of the feedback we have received from you.

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.

Everything we do at Apple is aimed at making our products the best in the world. We know that you expect that from us, and we will keep working non-stop until Maps lives up to the same incredibly high standard.


Tim CookApple’s CEO

Säga vad man vill om Tim Cook men det är rätt starkt utav en VD på ett så stort företag som Apple att öppet erkänna och be om förlåtelse för sina misstag på det här viset.
