Apple CEO Tim Cook has admitted the company could have done better with its Maps application and has even suggested customers use Google Maps instead, which the company dropped from its latest operating system.

In a letter released by Mr Cook, he apologised for the frustration the feature had caused and said Apple had ‘fallen short’.

‘At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers,’ he wrote in a document posted on the company’s official website.

‘With the launch of our new Maps last week, we fell short on this commitment.

‘We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better.’

The Apple boss recommended users try alternatives such as ‘ Google or Nokia maps by going to their websites and creating an icon on your home screen to their web app.’

The US tech giant dropped Google Maps from iOS6 after having it pre-installed on previous versions of the operating system.

He added Apple was continuing to improve its map software and the more people used it, the better it would get.

Users complained the new maps feature was not as detailed or as accurate as Google’s.

Well I googled around about this story and the rumour is that the fall out began because Google were adding features to the Andriod version of maps , BUT NOT the iOS version – so Apple being the way they are said screw you guys – and developed it’s own maps app!
