Apple: Blue-shirts can fix iOS Maps in their spare time

Cunning new plan

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Concerned that the blue-shirt in the Apple Store isn't paying enough attention to your questions about charger adapters for your iPhone 5?

Maybe that's because she's trying to correct the location of the local airport on Apple's Maps application.

One of Apple's new strategies for fixing iOS Maps is to get their retail staff to log on and start correcting stuff, according to Apple Store watcher Gary Allen. Allen implies that he got the information from store employees asked by their bosses to fix up maps.

Apple Maps has a function for users to report errors, errors such as the ones that have listed defunct airports as functioning and placed Apple Stores in the wrong location.

As Tim Cook said in his surprising Maps apology, the more people submit corrections, the better the service will be.

Apple has 41,000 retail employees, but it's likely to take a bit more work than that to make all the corrections necessary in the global service. ®
