    Hi. I wouldn't worry if Ex-Apple Fan doesn't heed your advice. He/she isn't looking for a solution, instead is just here to keep increasing the google hits on the Maps issue.

    I think your right , Ex-Apple fan appears very one dimensional

     

    Or maybe I truly am the only person that knows iOS 6 and Apple Maps is better than anything previous

    You told me not to lower myself and I am trying not to..

     

    What am I supposed to do with their twisted logic?

     

    Is it that an iPhone was all what they ever dreamed of owning and their deam came true so they don't care less about anything else related to its functionality?

     

    I see they started on you... then back on me and I am now considered to be here to make this page rank higher on Google searches !!!!!

     

    Will you try to send an email to Tim Cook instead of the blackhole feedback?

    My advice remains - keep your dignity.

     

    For info, I emailed Scott Forstall and and Tim Cook last week. I know it's almost certainly futile but I still wanted to try. No reply, of course, not even an acknowledgement from Apple. That's how they roll...

    That solution shouldn't come from any caring Apple user who also cares about Apple's brand.

     

    This solution only comes from pro Google people who are trolling.

     

    Grow up son.

    What do you think we could do to get thousands of people sending similar messages?

    That's funny , you 'seem' to be in Europe .

    That's right. I am. I was actually replying to modular747 but if you feel the need to have a little dig, by all means..

    Did you need to get to the Police station for an emergency / to report a Maps App crime ? or did you notice the police station was missing while looking for mapping errors?

    Er... no, it wasn't an emergency. I would have dialled 999 for that and have them come to me, you plank.

     

    I did though need to go to the police station, and apart from the wrong street, postcode and phone number, Apple Maps was spot on! I even then tried to do as Timbo asked and correct the error for them by dragging the pin to the right location - however the satellite image that popped up was so pixelated I couldn't even make the road out, never mind the building. Go Apple!

    If you think about the numbers 10/10 they will start show up everywhere...!?

     

    Very true. Also pink elephants.

    Apologies if my view seems ignorant and superior to yours .

    Ignorant and superior? Well, one out of two ain't bad.

    I would imagine thousands already have. It almost certainly won't change anything but it just might...

     

    This thread and ones like it can only raise awareness, both to Apple* and people either curious about iOS 6 / Maps or hoping for a solution.

     

     

     

    * Yes we know, all you defenders of the faith. Apple aren't here.

    Oh no Ex-Apple Fan! What are you going to do now? Someone with less points than you has dared to have a different opinion to you!! Now all your previously used insults and childish names aimed at Level 2+ users are useless!

     

    Incidentally, allowing downgrading of iOS is nowhere near as simple as you think. Many apps have been updated for iOS 6, and the user data stored within those apps is also likely to have been updated or changed since the upgrade.

     

    So, its not just a simple, cost-free OS downgrade. Every updated app that now makes use of iOS 6 features would also need to be downgraded, and all user data that has been updated in iOS 6, would somehow have to be reverted back to iOS 5 compatible user data. Customers would lose any iOS 6 specific app features or updates. Customers would lose any of their personal data that has been updated whilst using iOS 6.

     

    You think customers like you would accept this, if Apple did allow downgrading of the OS?

    Apps are backwards compatible, certainly to iOS 4. Nice try though.

    Le.bouch,

    Just for your information I emailed the entire senior executive at Apple individually.

    I had the correct addresses from (ironically) a London meeting at which we were held as an example of great use of Apple Technology...

    Without exception the response is that you get someone from Customer services detailed to call you.

    In every case the person delegated to call me (they've called and we've spoken 9 times to date) has just said they apologise for rendering all our iPads (25+)!now unusable for our application.

    They go on to say that there is no integrated solution available that meets our needs, they have no timeline for any improvement, and that they 'do not support' returning to iOS 5.1.1.

    Asked if they would sign the software and allow us to return at our own risk, they still declined.

    Again explaining that we were a business customer with a significant investment in Apple, and that we felt this was not good enough.

    Their response was "it's tough - we can't help you" - this from Executive Level complaints at Apple.

    I think this response, and otherwise complete lack of communication from Apple demonstrates just how valuable their customers are to them.

    I'm sorry to say they have now lost our business for good, and we are now also taking legal action.

     

    Personally, with so much spare (and useless for our business) Apple hardware, we'll sell a lot - but will spread the rest around the family.

    I won't be buying any more.

     

    Our tests of other equipment have proven effective (Google Map based) and so we are in the process of migrating all out data. Should be completed by late tonight.

     

    Apple was foolish to release such poor software and then compounded the issue by refusing to let loyal customers go back to the prior firmware whilst they fixed it.

     

    Arrogant behaviour that has proven costly to us but will be even more costly for Apple in the long-term.

    Avoidable and just so very sad.

    I am not going to comment on the unprofessional part of your message. Iwish I could donate you my five points which I don't know why I am having them.

     

    Anyway..I will just stick to my purpose of being here.

     

    Definitely I would accept downgrading every application I have to suit iOS 5 without a second of hesitation. Actualy I don't even think I have any but I am ready to sign for Apple for that under my full consent.

    Nope, not all of them... It depends entirely on whether the app developer has made them backwards compatible, or has used iOS 6 specific APIs. And I also mentioned user data. For example, you try loading user data from an updated iOS 6 app that uses a newer SQLite version into a previous version using an older SQLite version, without writing some conversion code. Ain't gonna work!

    I am glad to read for you. Your post is by far the most useful post I have ever seen on this forum and all the threads I have written to (at least three)

     

    I am in and I would never buy any Apple hardware ever. I bought around 40 devices in five years for myself, friends, and relatives where I never made a penny as a profit. I was making fun about it saying it is only Apple and FedEx that are making money in all these dealings.

     

    Unfortunately, I will have to stick to my iPhone 4S for a while until I have the time again to start making approximatly 4,000 manual downloads that I have done before on this iPhone for one of the applications I am using on my future Android device. Not sure which one though.

     

    Bye Bye Apple.. it was good as it lasted...
