Apple’s CEO Tim Cook recently apologized for Apple Maps, which has come under quite a bit of criticism since it was launched with iOS 6, he also announced that Apple would be working hard to improve the service.
According to MacRumors, one of the ways Apple is looking to improve Apple Maps in iOS 6, is to use select retail employees in different store locations, and apparently participating stores will dedicate 40 hours of staff time per week.
The employees will manually examine Apple mapping data in their area, and then submit corrections and improvements direct to Apple, in an attempt to improve their Maps App.
Of course this has not been confirmed by Apple, but it would make sense for Apple to use retail employees, as they have over 400 stores and nearly 40,000 employees, so they could provide some valuable feedback to Apple on iOS 6 Maps.
