Uber Tells Its Drivers Not to Use Apple Maps

The new software is not the most reliable at sending people the right way


Uber, a startup that relies on Apple's iPhones for its drivers to navigate cities and pick up customers, seems afraid of Apple Maps.

TechCrunch says it recently sent a text message to its fleet of drivers instructing them not to upgrade their smart phones to iOS 6 — at least not for another week.
