Google Maps: returns to iPhones

Google Maps has returned to the iPhone, months after Apple replaced it with its own service.

Apple replaced Google's mapping service with its own when it launched its iPhone 5 handset but the move was widely panned after the service was found to contain errors.

Complaints included Berlin appearing in Antarctica, a Dublin farm labelled as an airport and the Severn Bridge appearing flattened.

The faults forced Apple chief executive Time Cook to make a public apology.

The free Google Maps app is available in 40 countries and has features such as turn-by-turn navigation, live-traffic updates and birds-eye view of landscapes.
