Apple Maps receives first update, rebuilds New York City landmarks

Apple’s new Maps app has been – well, it hasn’t been good. The company has already promised that the application will get better with time, and CEO Tim Cook has even went so far as to publicly apologize and promise a fix as soon as possible. Thankfully, it seems that Apple is keeping its promises and today quietly released an update to Maps that rebuilds some of New York City’s most recognizable landmarks.

Memorable New York City landmarks that were updated today include the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan Bridge. In fact, most of New York seems to be all fixed and ready to view like Apple intended.

Unfortunately, areas outside New York are still messed up – especially if those areas are in countries other than the United States. Still, this update came one week later than the pathetic Tim Cook letter, which means that Apple truly is trying hard to fix what it broke.

Let us know if you find any other changes in Maps today. You won’t have to manually update the app, as the update seems to have been applied to the Maps servers, so just fire the app up and look around!
