Ever since iOS 5 came out for the iPhone users have been complaining about the integrated Apple Maps system. There are a number of issues and bugs that Apple is still working on but the good news is that Apple is apparently planning to approve Google Maps for the iPhone as well. This means that iPhone users will still get to choose between the two competing systems.
Google Maps is still in development for iOS 5, but Google was originally very concerned that Apple most likely would not approve the app. Now that Apple announced there will likely be no issues Google is expected to continue work on the iOS app. No word on when it will actually be available but millions of iPhone users are waiting anxiously for a better map solution.
Apple maps is one of the biggest complaints for iOS 5, so it is definitely a big deal that Google has decided to continue developing for iOS 5. It is only a matter of time before the app is finished but up until this week there was no guarantee that it would ever actually be approved for iPhone use. Fortunately Apple came to the conclusion that it will likely be acceptable which has been very well received by iPhone users.
