iosm01As expected, Apple has just released iOS 6 to the public, making the download available to users of recent iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch models. Due to Apple's new iOS 6 mobile operating system (new mapping module developed by Apple itself) , it became a replacement from Google-supplied maps to iOS maps.
Concerning this, D-Waste Atlas, which is a crowdsourcing open source map using Google maps have been affected from this change. The problem is common for all iOS applications which used to have Google Maps and now automatically turn into Apple's mapping data system.
The official release of iOS 6 was immediately followed by users complaining also about the new maps, which lack a significant amount of detail and omit public transit directions and boot up problem on applications using Google maps. We are hopping and expecting from Apple to improve their maps and eliminate their errors and bugs.


"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"
"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." Apple
