    You cannot delete the Maps app or any other of the included apps. All you can do is put it a folder where it's out of the way.

     

    Regard.

    You cannot delete it. Move it to the last page or wait for it to improve.

    You can not delete Certian Apps including Maps because Apple had them Built in so you can rather move it to a folder or you can just wait for it to improve on another IOS Update 

     

    If you want you can search up Maps on the App Store but im not sure how good they are because i dont ever have to use maps

     

    Wait for the next update if you can but if this is an issue for you you can try downloading a Map App from the App Store

     

    Best of Luck

    Don't believe everything you read on the internet. Apple Maps is different than Google, but it is superior in many ways.

    Yer kidding right??? Apple maps suck!  I used google maps several times a week and it was excellent.  I've tried to use Apple maps 3 times and it was horrible!  What is superior?  If I'm not familiar with the area I use street view to orient myself so I  know what I'm looking for.  Apple will never have that.  Addresses are popping up in the wrong city. 

     

    If you want to use Google maps google it and you can get it back on your phone.

     

    Here is an interesting one.  I tried to move Apple maps to a page far back in my phone so I wasn't bothered with it and put the Google Maps icon in the normal place.  When I turned off the move feature the Apple logo appears like it does when your shutting off the phone and WA LA!  The Apple crap app is back in its place.  I just put the google map down on the tool bar.

    Turn-by-turn, audible directions

    Vector-based maps

    Reable labels whose size can be controlled by the user

     

    If you are sitting at home, looking at maps and street views, the Google maps is very nice. But you can continue to use Google maps while sitting at home.

     

    If you are actually out and about, with a 3G connection, then Apple's Maps are much more useable.

    You are kidding right? I used the apple maps navigation tool (turn by turn) to replicate a trip i had used google maps for the previous day: Google maps: the trip took 45 mins, Apple Maps: the trip took 1hr 25 mins, and took me on a ridiculous route on dirt tracks. I had full 3g and GPS reception. It is the WORST mapping tool available.

    Well I took a trip yesterday following Google's directions and Google instructed me to dig a tunnel!

    Right, i think there should be a rule against apple staff posting regard these issues. These maps are inferior to all other products. I am a professional forester, working in remote areas of australia - google maps will always be superior. Its such a pity as i am Apple through and through, this is a major letdown. Poor accuracy, incoorect locations, visually poor. I use self-made rastor differentially corrected maps and they beat Apples maps. In fact, i do better with an old topo and a compass.

    I find this part of your post interesting. Apple does not read or reply to these posts or this forum. This is a user to user technical support forum. That was part of the TOS you agreed to when joining the forum.

    That is just a standard refrain when someone with a lot of points challenges a post.

     

    Apple Maps is proven inferior because it doesn't work as well for a few people in some random, remote area of the world that has no people, but excellent 3G coverage. It can be Australia, Brazil, just about anywhere that isn't verifiable by 99.9% of all iPhone users.

     

    What's the worst case scenario? Apple loses its entire customer base in the Outback?

    I may work in the 'Outback' but live in newcastle, near sydney, representing a cool 8 million people in the region, in one of the worlds strongest economies. Our dollar kicks the greenback to **** at the moment, and is getting up there against the Euro, Yen and GBP. its not about the quantity of people, it's the quality thanks. I used it (apple Maps) in Paris and southern france a couple of weeks back, and its just a weak there. Im glad you pride youself on your points, it some achievement. I'll recommend Apple print you a badge. Keep on preaching genius.

    The other part is the fact that no one thinks about the fact that Google had 7 years to perfect their product. I have found that in rural Illinois that Apple maps has more current satellite data than Google had, looking at areas I am familiar with. I will be the first to admit it isn't the greatest, but it is a work in progress.
