How good is Apple Maps in iOS6 for China?
Posted November 29th, 2012 - 3:44 pm by from Vienna, Austria (Permalink)
I am currently in China (Xinjiang, but on my way back to BJ) and am hesitant to upgrade my iPhone 4 to iOS6 as I use Google Maps quite a bit and don't know how Apple Maps would work here.

I just wanted to dl a new camera program - Camkit, but it requires 5.1 and I am still on 5.0.1 and could only upgrade to 6.

What have been your experiences with the new iOS6 respectively its Apple Map feature?

Well, I guess I'll hold off then until google maps will be in the App Store which should actually be fairly soon. Thanks for the feedback.

P.S. Yes, Tim Cook fired Scott Forstall but the rumour goes that the map disaster was just the pretense and it was really that after the "mourning year" for Steve, Tim wanted to get rid of Scott who was obviously not getting along with many at Apple and causing a stir. Scott was Steve's princeling, they say and Steve was the only one able to keep him in check. The design mastermind behind all or most Apple products, Johnny Ive has now taken over the design responsibilities for software as well.
