- Product Type: GPS Map Service
Apple should not be let off the hook for their own failed tech products just yet. Apple had to deal with one of its main competitors, Google, for all of its mapping services for years. They felt they could avoid this by developing their own version simply called “Apple Maps” in 2012 as it moved into iOS 6. The result was a massive failure for Apple. Their mapping service was horribly bug-filled, lacked any public transit information in many countries, and mostly offered blank voids. On top of that, you’d get misplaced landmarks too. Just under 10 years later, they tried again. Yet Apple Maps only offers detailed transit directions in a select few cities worldwide. Google, meanwhile, can allow us to see our house from space.
