@parislemon: Apple to drop Google Maps in iOS 6.

MG Siegler, writing for TechCrunch, pretty much confirms what has been floating around for the past few months:

Apple will drop Google Maps in iOS 6.

This is huge.

For Google Maps, winter is coming. Potentially.

As you’ve undoubtedly seen by now, with the upcoming iOS 6 software, Apple intends to replace the Google Maps aspect of their default Maps application with their own, in-house version. Mark Gurman of 9to5 Mac was the first to report this news, and dives into more of the detail behind it, including the 3D aspect. John Paczkowski of AllThingsD confirmed the change. And after talking to my own source, I can beat the dead horse in confirming the switch.

Nice Game of Thrones reference. Be sure to click the source above: Some more goodies are revealed.
