Last week Apple released its own Maps application as part of iOS 6. And in case you haven't tried it - and haven't seen any tech site all week - it's terrible

Users quickly realised that many places were misnamed, missing or misplaced, and one tech editor called the release the worst software update in Apple's history.


After the story broke we updated our iPads and found the 10 funniest fails on the Maps app.

But now it's been claimed that Apple is already fixing the errors, and working as quickly as it can to turn Maps around.

So how many of the fails we found have been fixed? Take a look to find out how hard Apple has been working this week...
