Apple asks retail workers to point out iOS 6 Maps mistakes

Aggressively pursues fix for public complaints

Managers at Apple Stores are asking their subordinates to help spot mistakes in iOS 6 Maps, according to Twitter posts by ifoAppleStore's Gary Allen. The initiative is said to be voluntary, but no other details have been mentioned. Over 40,000 people work at Apple Stores around the world, and Apple may be hoping to use this base to accelerate Maps fixes.

Shortly after iOS 6 debuted last month people began noticing a number of inaccuracies and graphical glitches in the new edition of Maps. The problems have drawn a lot of negative publicity, especially in comparison to the Google content earlier versions of iOS relied on. The switch is believed to have been ordered by Steve Jobs, who was upset at Google holding back the turn-by-turn navigation option long available to Android users.
