After short absence, Google Maps returns to the Apple iPhone (+video)
Google Maps, which was temporarily banished by Apple from all iOS 6 devices, is back in style.
Back in September, Apple booted Google Maps from iOS 6, and replaced it with an in-house mapping application called Apple Maps. Panic ensued. Users, who had been leaning on Google Maps since the launch of the first iPhone, in 2007, suddenly found themselves saddled with a buggy, incomplete, and sometimes wildly incorrect piece of software.
