Apple’s Maps App Starts Showing Signs of Improvement

A week after Apple CEO Tim Cook released an open letter pertaining to the firm's maps app, users are already starting to see improvements.

The app's 3D component, in particular, has shown signs of renovation. Landmarks including the Statue of Liberty, as well as buildings that have been missing from the flyover mode, are now present on the app.

A “List of cities with 3D mapping” thread on MacRumors' forums has seen users reporting seeing several new buildings and other 3D images within the maps app in locations such as London, New York City and Los Angeles.

Before Cook's apology, Apple were actively hiring software engineers (which were ex-Google employees) in order to help refine the overall experience in iOS maps.

  • Of course it is, It would be harder to show signs of un-improvement.

  • frombehindThis is just like SiRi... it barely worked when they released it. Now it works "decently enough".This kind-of software improves with use. Just give it time.

    The problem is they had something that worked perfectly fine. What people are complaining about is the releasing of an unfinished project. People were pretty much used as beta testers on what was supposed to be a "new feature" in iOS6.
