Australian police recently warned the local public not to use Apple Maps. Why? Because it was ultimately leading people not to the town of Mildura, as hoped, but into the wilderness where their lives were at risk due to high summer temperatures. Apple recently fixed the issue, however, so now anyone who searches for Mildura will actually get directions to the town, instead of 45 miles away deep inside a national park.
The Guardian noticed that Apple Maps still shows an area near the park that’s incorrectly labeled Mildura, but the application no longer provides turn-by-turn directions to the wrong place. Police said the issue has been occurring ever since Apple introduced its own Maps application, which replaced Google Maps, in iOS 6. We hope this is the last we hear of it.
