Apple updates its maps of Australia after police considered them dangerous
Apple updated its Maps of Australia after police in that country warned motorcyclists and motorists who use this system could be dangerous . Maps of the company on the block stood the city of Mildura in the middle of a national park, less than 70 miles from its actual position.
At least four people, according to police records, were lost trying to find the people using iOS maps 6. No grace in a place where temperatures can reach 46° C and where there is little water available nearby, something that “could threaten life,” according to the police warning.
After Mildura shot to fame for this curious situation, Apple updated the position of the people and now aims to look for the right place. This is not the only problem with iOS 6, which has been quite disastrous debut, leading the company’s own CEO, Tim Cook, a public apology . It also meant the dismissal of the charge of the maps, Richard Williamson .
