Although iOS 6 maps application from Apple certainly not bad, it is also clear that there are enough problems with it. The service was about two weeks ago officially announced during the release of Apple’s latest mobile operating system iOS 6. Errors that you will find are melted bridges, closed restaurant, and farms are mentioned as airports, it was so bad that Apple CEO Tim Cook in a public letter apologized. The company said earlier indicated that it will do everything to provide the service as soon as possible to improve the maps app, and they do have a very special way. Apple retail Store employees would be asked to improved maps.
According to an article from MacRumors, multiple Apple Stores are part of a program where 40 hours per week will be devoted to improving the iOS 6 maps. Teams of blue shirts Apple will soon roam the streets, to the accuracy of the maps to control, and to see if your local Burger King in real life not a plant nursery. The employees will have to report to an expert who is assigned to each store, this will later change the errors in the internal database of Apple Maps.
MacRumors has learned that Apple is piloting a program to tap into its vast number of retail store employees to help improve the company’s new Maps app for iOS 6.
Details on the initiative remain unclear, but multiple sources have indicated that participating stores will dedicate 40 hours of staff time per week, distributed among a number of employees, to manually examine Apple’s mapping data in their areas and submit corrections and improvements.
The so-called crowd-sourcing is a good way for Apple to improve the quality of their cards as quickly as possible to improve, unfortunately there is not in every city an Apple Store to find, and this will also mean that only the urban areas on the map to be improved. It is in any case clear that Apple is still a lot of work ahead of it before it can be said that Apple Maps the finest and most powerful cards service.
