Apple updates its maps with the first corrections and improvements since its launch in iOS 6

Apple has begun to correct many of the errors and anomalies detected by users on the new maps of iOS 6 . Since quality improvements satellite images of some regions to the addition of new roads that were not on the standard view, the more points of interest, search results, directions and increased areas in 3D mode Flyover .
This latter type found for example that some points of New York as significant as the Statue of Liberty or the Brooklyn Bridge and its surrounding areas are now fully modeled in 3D, while other areas such as Honolulu (Hawaii) or the Valley San Fernando (Calif.) were added to the growing number of areas covered by Flyover.

Other corrections that have not gone unnoticed by users ranging from a problem with the output of a motorway in Auckland, New Zealand, to the location of an entire people in Uckfield, UK. Apple still has much work to do to catch up to Google Maps, but it's definitely good news to see how they are putting all their effort into it.
Another notable change to iOS maps 6 was not produced in the service but in Apple's description of it on their own website. The company now appears much more contained in his statements , eliminating the phrase in the text that claimed to have "the most comprehensive service and spectacular maps ever seen" . Fact 1, Department of Marketing 0.
From the beginning I have always said that one of the major mistakes Apple has not been ruled out Google maps, but trying to convince users that they would be able to offer the same level of service from the beginning. As with Siri, a poster of beta and a dose of humility would have saved a lot of headaches.
Could be presumed to have a map application far more refined, with lovely crisp vector graphics always regardless of zoom level and 80% lighter , with a spectacular 3D mode, turn navigation and integration with Siri. They may have assumed that and more, but they should have admitted from the outset that they have a long road ahead for the data, the most important of all in a mapping application, are comparable to those of the competition.
As they say, the first step to solving a problem is recognizing it . Second, work tirelessly
