    Appleswitched from the old Google Maps to Apple Maps so it may look different. But there are settings to change to satellite view or hybrid view if you tap the lower right corner where it looks like a peeling piece of paper

     

    If you want google, your only option is maps.google.com and you can add it to the homescreen.

     

    Check the forum as there are a lot of unhappy people and Tim Cook published an apology to customers.

    I just saw that I may have misunderstood.

     

    You can try a hard reset by pressing the sleep/awake button and the home button together for 10 to 15 seconds until the phone reboots and then see if the maps app resets and starts working. If not, try a shutdown and restart.

    I have the same problem. I've tried resetting and turning the phone on and off with no luck. This is ridiculous.

    My Maps icon has disappeared too.  Unfortunately, with 47 apps in 8 folders, I'm don't feel the Apple Map app is worth having to reload and format everything.

     

    The "restore will to factory defaults" will reproduce the Map app, but if I follow that with ""restore from backup" to load all my apps and settings, it will delete it again.

     

    Grrrr!  Apple should have a way to permit us to download it's 10 core apps when this happens, rather than telling us to start from scratch again.
