Apple Minta Maaf Terkait Masalah Maps di iOS 6

Apple akhirnya melayangkan permintaan maafnya kepada para konsumennya, terkait dengan adanya masalah fitur maps di iOS.

Meski banyak dikeluhkan para pengguna iOS 6 terkait ‘ngaconya’ Apple Maps, awalnya Apple bersikeras bahwa 99% data pada aplikasi Maps bawaannya iOS 6 itu akurat. Kini tampaknya Apple telah mengakui kesalahannya terkait dengan adanya ketidakberesan pada aplikasi yang hadir bersama iOS 6 itu.

Atas kesalahan yang terjadi, CEO Apple, Tim Cook, mengatakan bahwa pihaknya sangat menyesal dan meminta maaf kepada para konsumennya yang frustrasi lantaran aplikasi Apple Maps yang masih bermasalah.

Sementara Apple bekerja keras untuk meningkatkan performa dan akurasi Apple Maps, Tim Cook menyarankan kepada pengguna iOS 6 untuk mencoba atau mendownload aplikasi maps lain App Store, seperti Bing, MapQuest, dan Waze, atau menggunakan Google atau Nokia Maps.

Berikut pernyataan maaf Apple secara lengkap yang diposting melalui situs resminya:

To our customers,

At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers. With the launch of our new Maps last week, we fell short on this commitment. We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better.

We launched Maps initially with the first version of iOS. As time progressed, we wanted to provide our customers with even better Maps including features such as turn-by-turn directions, voice integration, Flyover and vector-based maps. In order to do this, we had to create a new version of Maps from the ground up.

There are already more than 100 million iOS devices using the new Apple Maps, with more and more joining us every day. In just over a week, iOS users with the new Maps have already searched for nearly half a billion locations. The more our customers use our Maps the better it will get and we greatly appreciate all of the feedback we have received from you.

While we’re improving Maps, you can try alternatives by downloading map apps from the App Store like Bing, MapQuest and Waze, or use Google or Nokia maps by going to their websites and creating an icon on your home screen to their web app.

Everything we do at Apple is aimed at making our products the best in the world. We know that you expect that from us, and we will keep working non-stop until Maps lives up to the same incredibly high standard.

Tim Cook
