Unfortunately for Apple Maps users, the program seems to get more lost than given users proper directions.
According to Apple Maps, Berlin, Germany is located in Antarctica. An entire airport has disappeared, one city is situated in the middle of an ocean and a freeway suddenly ends in nowhere.
The city of Gothenburg in Sweden, does, according to Apple Maps, not exist.
Airfield, a 35,000 acres piece of land with a farm and a cafe in Dublin, Ireland, is according to Apple Maps an airstrip where pilots can land.
Apple’s newest iOS6, which contains the new Apple Maps app, has been available for download since Wednesday.
Users are not happy with Apple’s Maps app and have expressed their disappointment and for some disgust on Twitter and Facebook.
@RayneBradley wrote at Twitter: “The people who thought the world was flat were better map makers than Apple.”
Of course Apple had an answer for its Maps mess up. Trudy Muller said on behalf of Apple: “We are constantly working to improve the app but since it is cloud based, it will only get better as more people use it.”
That comment hasn’t stopped one clever users of creating a Tumblr site displaying all the Apple Maps screw ups.
