Apple fires IOS 6 Maps chief Print E-mail

GADGET DESIGNER Apple reportedly has fired the executive in charge of its IOS 6 Maps app, while it continues to work on improving it.

Bloomberg reports that Richard Williamson, who oversaw Apple's mapping team, was shown the door on Tuesday by SVP Eddy Cue. This follows the surprise exit of IOS executive Scott Forstall, who had overall responsibility for Apple's failing Maps application.

The criticism got so bad that Apple CEO Tim Cook was forced to issue an apology, in which he recommended other mapping apps that IOS users could download.

"Cue, who took over last month as part of a management shakeup, is seeking advice from outside mapping-technology experts and prodding digital maps provider Tomtom [...] to fix landmark and navigation data it shares with Apple," Bloomberg reports.
