Yet another maps thread

During the betas of iOS 6 - the maps were updated once each beta release. When do you think we will see some improvements to Maps?

Surely it should be happening all the time?

I mean, when people report a missing town, Apple should eventually add that town and it should just appear.

I suspect that's not right. During the beta, Apple updated everything at once when there were updates. If what you're saying is right, then I wonder why this hasn't been fixed yet: http://www.travelerstoday.com/articles/3123/20120921/apples-ios-6-map-app-mistakes-dublin-farm-for-an-airport-and-a-bar-for-a-zoo-ireland-glitch-technology-dublin-airport-iphone-5-funny-alan-shatter.htm

Last Thursday Maps didn't know where Children's Hospital in Los Angeles was. Yesterday I was going to mark and report it, but it had been updated already.

I know what you mean, but it's like Google Maps, Google don't announce and release a new version of maps, it just gets added/updated?

I seriously hope Apple doesn't wait to release a new 'version' each time with say 5000 changes, but this is the company that still won't put their own apps in their own app store so only updates them once a year if we're lucky...and takes their own website down for the day etc!

Now Forstall can stand up there and talk about the 200 new features at every WWDC coming to iOS and the 5000 POI they were able to put in the correct location. 5200 things thrown at the iNerds will paralyze them.


"Check this out, it's the most amazing feature yet.....The Jack in the Box is no longer located in a rock quarry! It's the most amazing thing we've ever done. HALF of maps works now!"
