Not only did Apple CEO Tim Cook recently apologize for the Apple Maps app and recommended competitors' mapping solutions as alternatives, but now Apple has changed some language related to Maps on its website as well.
No longer does the Cupertino-based company declare its new Maps app to be "the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever."
We have a screenshot to compare the Apple site's current language to the old language thanks to 9to5 Mac reader Zaheen Hafzer, who tweeted it in response to the blog's post on Cook's apology letter to Apple customers. "Tim [C]ook should consider changing this line," he wrote.
And lo and behold. A change was made.
This is the original text on Apple's website:
Designed by Apple from the ground up, Maps gives you turn-by-turn spoken directions, interactive 3D views, and the stunning Flyover feature. All of which may just make this app the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever.
This is the new text:
Designed by Apple from the ground up, Maps gives you turn-by-turn spoken directions, interactive 3D views, and the stunning Flyover feature. All in a beautiful vector-based interface that scales and zooms with ease.
Notice the big difference?
We have reached out to the folks at Apple to see if they have anything to say about this changed language on their website. We will update if we hear anything of interest.
