Brooklyn Bridge less warped in Apple's iOS 6 Maps update

When Apple launched its first in-house iOS map app for iOS 6 in mid-September, quite a few of the photo images that were placed in the app were, well, lacking in quality. One of the most obvious problems was with the images of the famous Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, which in Apple's iOS 6 map app looked like it was hit by a post-apocalyptic event.

Apple, via a letter from its CEO Tim Cook, has since sent out an apology for the iOS 6 map app launch and pledged to improve its mapping efforts. Today, some of that work showed up in a new update that fixed some of the photos visible in the maps.

 

AppleInsider.com reports that the 3D flyover photos of the Brooklyn Bridge have now been fixed in this update, giving the iconic landmark a full revamp that basically restores the bridge to its full glory. The image update is apparently not available for all iOS 6 map users, at least not yet, so it may take a day or two for the update to be rolled out to iPhone and iPad owners. We expect that Apple is scrambling to fix some of the more obvious issues in the map app before concentrating on adding features.
