The 'iOS 6 Maps: an Explanation From Apple' Parody Examines the Issues

By: Jennifer Gosnell - Published: • References: youtube & mashable
The 'iOS 6 Maps: an Explanation From Apple' parody examines the key issues surrounding the recently released Apple software update for the iPhone and the iPad. The maps app that Apple has given to the iPhone replaces the maps app run by Google as part of its competitive process with the giant information house. However, unlike with the Google maps app, people have been experiencing a variety of glitches and are lashing back at the corporation.

The new Apple maps app has been creating some interesting and confusing problems for users -- places that don't exist, the relocation of places that do and a generalized strange look for others. The iOS 6 Maps: an Explanation From Apple parody is done to look like an actual Apple commercial -- same simple font, style and ideas -- yet parodies the corporation's newly released product. As a mandatory update for iPhone 5 users, the maps app is here to stay. Perhaps, as the video suggests, iOS 6.1 will be a different story. Stats for Mobile Location Gags Trending: Older & Warm
