Google and Apple have had a strained relationship ever since Google started competing against the iPhone with their Android phone platform. Part of the fallout from this relationship was Apple abandoning the inclusion of Google Maps in the iPhone’s operating system. Apple’s map app, called Apple Maps, that replaced Google Maps was ridiculed by both the press and users. Apple CEO, Tim Cook, even issued a public apology for the Apple Maps app.
