Failed Products 2012
As the iPhone maker decided to part ways with rival Google and its Maps service, the Cupertino-based company rolled out the iOS 6 paving the way for its own version of a map app — the Apple Maps. Little did Apple know its own brew of the maps system could invoke strong criticism from users across the globe. Obscured cloud cover, incorrect search information (confusing Greenland with the Indian Ocean), black and white images marred what might have been a fresh take on Maps. The entire befuddlement cost Apple CEO Tim Cook to apologise, ending with the resignation of vice president iOS software, Scott Forstall.
Luckily, Google Maps once again graces the iOS interface and has become the most downloaded app on iTunes.
