As previously reported, Apple CEO Tim Cook issued an apology to iOS device customers today, admitting that the Maps product, which the company replaced Google Maps with, is not a great product, and even went so far as to suggest some alternatives for users.
At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers, said Cook. 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.
