No Google Maps for the iPhone 5?

It seems that the recently launched iPhone 5 will not get Google Maps as an application on the App Store. So far the company did nothing to develop Google Maps for iOS 6 and, as you remember, Apple has dropped this program in favor of its own Maps app.

According to Eric Schmidt from Google, so far there were no moves made to create and provide Google Maps for the new handset. Will there be no Maps in wings for the sixth-gen model? Who should take the first step, Apple or Google?

iOS 6 Update

The iPhone 5 release was followed by the launch of iOS 6. This new Apple firmware has brought a lot of new features to the software platform, including the mapping service developed by Apple. This service has replaced the built-in Google Maps.

The new Maps program is based on navigation equipment made in Netherlands. It also uses data by TomTom NV. As users complain, this iOS 6 application has geographical errors. Besides, it lacks the popular Google Maps features.

As Mr Schmidt told media, it would have been better if Apple kept Google’s program. But no one can force the Cupertino-based tech giant to change this decision. As for the possible iOS Google Maps app when you buy iPhone 5, it would be up to Apple whether to accept it in its App Store or not.

About Two Companies

Since the release of the first iPhone back in 2007 Apple and Google worked together as partners. They have included Google Maps and YouTube to this smartphone, but as Android OS was becoming more and more popular the ties between partners have strained.

Android is free to get. Besides, it accepts apps from developers on an open basis. The OS can boast over 500 million users from all over the world. As for Apple, it follows its own rules and is more focused on its branding.

Maps Features

Google has recently announced the Nexus tablet released in Japan. This device will surely feature Google Maps. This app will boast new feature which lets customers to move the gadget in the air and shift the area’s view. There is no need for them to touch the screen as they are performing this action. The new function makes you feel as if you were looking around.

Will iPhone 5 owners miss native Google application? Will they force Apple to get Google developing this program as an iOS 6 app? We will know the answers pretty soon as millions of new iPhone customers start using their devices on a daily basis.
