Friday Afternoon Funnies: Spoof Explanation Given for the Terrible Apple Maps on iOS6

You’re supposed to strike while the iron is hot, right? Yes, this is our third post about the disastrous Apple Maps, which replaced Google Maps on Apple’s latest operating software, iOS 6. Google Maps has been the frontrunner for online maps for years, but Apple is kicking out all things Google, and decided to make their own maps. The maps are quite slick for the most part, with cool looking 3D flyovers, and quick loading time. However, what it is loading isn’t always the best looking. Below we’ve highlighted some of the best pictures from the tumblr theamazingios6maps.tumblr.com, and as a bonus, we have a comedic explanation from Tom Scott, posing as Apple.
