SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Apple
Inc. has fired the executive who was in charge of the controversial mapping application included in the recently updated iOS 6 mobile operating system and shipped with the iPhone 5. According to a report by AllThingsD, Rich Williamson has left the company after overseeing development of the application, which has been roundly criticized as inferior to the Google Maps application that was embedded in previous versions of the iOS platform. The technology blog cited an unnamed source "with direct knowledge of the matter." Apple itself has not announced the move. The company's shares were last trading down about 0.9% at $584.30.
