You could use the following, and you don't need data to run them.

The problem is Apple's map app.

Apple had made a few big time mistakes in the past year and if they don't change they will end up like Apple of 1995!
I remember when Apple Maps with Google API put my house in another state. These things will be fixed and worked out. It's not worth getting upset about.

No chance!

Apple don't give people what they want, Apple give people what THEY want (good or bad, usually the later when it comes to recent software updates!!!)

Apple is almost desperate. I can foresee its stock price plunge if the sales numbers do not meet estimates.
