A lot of iOS 6 users are not happy with Apple’s new Maps App and are waiting for Google to release their Google Maps app in the App Store, but since it still can take a couple of months before they will submit their Google Maps app to the App Store, people are simply using Google Maps as a web app. David Pogue from The New York Times mentions: While bemoaning some navigation related mishaps in the new app, Street View imagery will be accessible via the Google Maps web app “in two weeks.” » Google Maps Street View: Available Via Mobile Safari In Two Weeks

Multiple reports claim that Google has been working on a replacement standalone Maps app for iOS to replace the bundled app included with every version of iOS until last week’s release of iOS 6, The New York Times claims that Google is hoping to have it available in “another couple months or so”.

Macrumors wrote: Apple and Google still have over a year left on their contract for Google to provide Maps for iOS, and thus Google was caught off guard when Apple announced in June that it would be replacing Google’s solution with its own Maps app for iOS 6. As a result, Google still needs several more months to complete work on a standalone offering to be submitted to Apple for inclusion in the App Store.

 A second reason for taking “another couple months or so” is because Google would likely prefer to release a maps app that includes 3-D imagery such as the 3-D images in Google Earth, it would take some time to combine the two. » Google Working On Maps App For iOS, But Complicated by Integration With Google Earth

iOS 6 has just been released, but many jailbreakers would like to wait before updating their iDevice to iOS 6 so they can keep enjoying their favorite jailbreak tweaks. Pod2g however just tweeted that he is not working on a jailbreak for iOS 6 “I’m not working on it ATM, sorry. I’m focusing on my job. Maybe discussions at #WWJC will generate ideas (?)” This means jailbreakers may have to wait a little longer before they can enjoy their tweaked iOS 6. » Pod2g: I’m Not Working On A Jailbreak For iOS 6

Reuters report: “Google Inc has made no move to provide Google Maps for the iPhone 5 after Apple Inc dropped the application in favor of a home-grown but controversial alternative, Google’s Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said.” Apple launched its own mapping service earlier this month, but users are complaining about Apple’s new map service and would love to see Google Maps back on their iPhone. Earlier reports said that Google has submitted a Google Maps app to the App Store but Google now said to reporters in Tokyo that they didn’t. » Google Said: Google Maps Not Yet Submitted To The App Store

A MacRumors forum threat reports that some iPhone 5 customers are having a problem with the iPhone 5’s Wi-Fi connectivity. Byran85 writes “I just got done setting up my iPhone 5 (as new, not restore). I was trying to download my music from iTunes when it seemed to be taking forever. I cancelled the downloads and then kept testing the WiFi in various other ways. Just loading the app store, my iPhone 4 will load anything faster than my iPhone 5 right now. I’ve rebooted the router and tried multiple devices and have narrowed the problem down to the WiFi in the iPhone 5. I’ve also tried using different bands, 2.4 and 5 both produce the same outcome. I launched app about 2 minutes ago and hit begin test. Its still “finding the closest server”. I have also tried the reset network settings. Still the same issue.” In that same threat other people report slow to no connectivity. » iPhone 5 Users Report Slow & Inconsistent Wi-Fi Connections
