In a recent interview where Google CEO Eric Schmidt shared a few words about the whole iPhone 5 maps snafu, it was revealed that an official Google Maps app for iOS6 will not be available any time soon. In fact, Schmidt says his company "have not done anything yet." This is sad news for iOS 6 users everywhere who are hoping for a quick Google Maps fix to aid them as Apple completely botches the native Maps app for the iPhone 5. There's a silver lining, however: the possibility of Google working with Apple for Maps has not been completely ruled out.
What Else You Need To Know
- Apple's recently released iOS 6 software update left users with a mostly broken Maps application, leading users to wrong locations or simply giving them wrong directions.
- Google Maps was removed by Apple in iOS 6 along with the native iOS YouTube app for a reason that up to this point is still unclear.
In the meantime you can always use Apple’s new Maps app, or take Nokia advice and use their browser based mapping solution (Nokia Maps)- Ian Hardy, Mobile Syrup
