Apple "Looking at the stats for all our apps (we have 4 universal apps with almost 3 million downloads) and for all versions after a month gives an interesting picture." Close to 70% is on iOS 6 already. In the meantime, Sony just announced it's going to leave loads of users in the cold by not upgrading their phones to Jelly Bean. Those that do have an update in the pipeline will have to wait until next year.

Sigh

Not had enough of your Anti-Apple medicine today then? (sarcasm implied)

I don't have an iPhone but an HTC Android phone but even I know that iPhone users can still use Google Maps just by directing their web browser to google maps.

No, not nearly enough to keep quiet.

It is true they that can use the web, but then they don't get turn by turn navigation like you get on Android.

We are expected to pay premium prices for Apple phones and we should expect premium quality products. The state of Apple maps is far from that. It is beta quality at best. So I think Apple deserves all they can get. Delivering something like this is totally out of character for them.
