Apple: 'We're working non-stop to improve iOS 6 Maps'

Apple's Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer has said that the company is working hard to improve the iOS 6 Maps app that was blasted by critics when it launched in September.
During Apple's fourth fiscal quarter earnings report on Thursday, Oppenheimer said: "We've made a number of improvements to Maps over the past month and will work non-stop until Maps lives up to our incredibly high standards."
Upon its launch, however, users found that landmarks had been relocated, buildings were obscured by cloud and some areas are in black and white, as well as many other inaccuracies in new app.
The complaints became so wide spread that Apple's CEO Tim Cook issued a public apology about its mapping service, and suggested that iOS users turn to competing apps "while we're improving."
Some improvements have since been spotted, and Oppenheimer's comment suggests that we will see further changes to the Maps service in the near future.
