Why does apple not want google maps anymore?


This is just a guess but I would imagine with the Apple vs Samsung lawsuits concluding, an Apple vs Google legal battle might happen in the near future. I don't know enough about the specific details of the lawsuits but it sounds like Apple was contesting attributes of both the Samsung hardware as well as android software. If they are gearing up for a battle with Google, they will probably want to become as independent from all Google software as possible in the meantime. Since they have the resources to create their own maps, they probably figured it would be a worthwhile long term investment.

im hearing that with most cases (not the thick ass construction worker cases) it adds so little thickness its about the size of the iphone 4/4s without a case.
I'm hoping Apple puts out bumpers again for the 5

of course they will. $30 for a piece of rubber that costs $.05 ... its a no brainer

Apple seems to be on the warpath saying connectors are holding them back from making thinner products. They said that was why they had to scrap iphone 5 waterproof case ethernet ports and change up the old magsafe plug for this generation of laptops. I agree. It's all about moving forward. Apple will always risk pissing off someone or some group by changing something, even things as fundamental as the ports on the device, connectors, etc. I for one am thankful that they make these moves.

I think Apple will replace it for you if you bring it in but I'm not entirely sure about that.

I heard about getting scuff. What color did you get?

If apple doesn't bring back google maps in next 4 months I'm gonna switch to android.
Apple maps isn't accurate.
