Share: Removes “Most Powerful Mapping Service Ever” Description


In other mapping-related news, Apple has modified their description of Apple Maps on iOS on their website. The claim of the “most powerful mapping service ever” has been removed from the description (via Labnol). Check it out the old text below:

…and the new change below:

Apple had a gargantuan task of replacing Google Maps, one of the best mapping solutions around. They set high expectations, users listened, and found out on their own it wasn’t even up to par. Expectations are premeditated resentment. Let’s hope it only gets better.

    Glad i kept my jailbroken 4 on ios5 now and knew better then to get the ultra new amazing iphone 4ss.

    Haha, I like that, and so true!

    Just used the native maps app for the first time, in Ottawa. Great turn-by-turn directions, got me exactly where I wanted to go (I didn’t even have the exact address), so far so good?!

    I would mostly agree. While the maps aren’t perfect in my experience they aren’t as bad as the media seems to be making them out to be

    Ha! I take issue with their replacement description. Maps on my iPad 3 are so choppy when zooming and scrolling, it feels counter to everything I’ve come to expect (premeditavely resent?) about iOS. 4S at least handles it well.
