Apple launched its Maps application for iOS last week with the operating system's launch. Soon after, users started complaining that the platform couldn't quite keep up with Google Maps. The application lacks key details on prominent cities, and in one instance, an entire town was in the wrong location. Users also found duplicate islands and other odd quirks. Due to those troubles, Apple has announced that the Maps situation will improve. However, the company hasn't said when it will deliver updates.
It's not clear whether former Google workers will want to join Apple to fix up its Maps, However, TechCrunch's source claims that many of the folks who used to work on Google Maps seem willing to join Apple, and one person who did is "now paid handsomely" by the iPhone maker, Another person was recently contacted by an Apple recruiter, who offered an $85,000 salary plus moving expenses to get working on the project, Apple has not confirmed uag pathfinder iphone xs rugged case - black that it's actually looking to hire Google Maps workers, CNET has contacted Apple for comment on the TechCrunch report, We will update this story when we have more information..
After trouble with Maps, Apple reportedly is looking to bolster its staff and start improving the mapping application built into iOS 6. After coming under fire for its Maps application, Apple has decided to look for some help from former Google workers. Apple is currently trying to woo folks who worked on Google Maps, TechCrunch is reporting, citing a source. That source claims that many of those who were contracted to help Google with its Maps application are seriously considering joining Apple, since the company offers an opportunity to create something new, rather than deliver "tedious updates" to an already established product.
Still, the iPhone 5 re-establishes Apple's dominance in the smartphone business, While Samsung Electronics may lead the market in total smartphones sold, no other company can garner the kind of excitement and anticipation for a new product, and uag pathfinder iphone xs rugged case - black few companies can reap the sheer amount of profit that Apple can with the iPhone, The success comes despite criticism that the iPhone 5 isn't a ground-breaking upgrade from the previous version, and that its key features -- a bigger display and a 4G wireless connection -- are elements that should have been included in the iPhone 4S..
More embarrassing is Apple's own maps application, which contains a number of errors, distorted images, and a lack of details in different locations that have many wishing the company hadn't booted Google Maps out of iOS 6. Still, the iPhone 5 has agarnered strong reviews, and neither the lack of a major change in its esthetics nor the map flap have hurt demand. Apple also said today that more than 100 million devices have upgraded to iOS 6, the latest version of its mobile operating system. Wall Street had higher expectations, with estimates as high as 10 million units sold over the first weekend. The company could sell as many as 50 million units in the fourth quarter, according to J.P. Morgan.
