Apple’s Maps and the Shadow of Steve Jobs

There is no doubt that Apple is one of the largest companies in the world especially when it comes to market capitalization.

The kind of status that Apple enjoys in the global technology market is something that attracts millions of people around the world to see what they have to offer. Apart from that Steve Jobs who have been the guiding force behind Apple’s success is something that charms people in the United States and also across the world.

The idea of coming up with their own mapping software was something that Steve Jobs envisioned when he was alive and Apple has been working on it to make sure it becomes a reality. Apple today has tried to introduce the new mapping software and the new iOS 6 that has the ability to compete with the best software that Google can produce. However, Apple has failed to explain what they are trying to bring up in the market and how they are going to use the same technologies in the future.
