Apple Maps head Richard Williamson reportedly handed pink slip
| by Ramkumar Iyer |
Richard Williamson, the person who oversaw the Maps team at Apple, has been fired by Senior Vice President Eddy Cue, according to reports in the media. Apple has faced much criticism for its buggy and faulty Maps app ever since it was launched in September this year. Williamson’s pink slip comes in the wake of a reshuffle in Apple’s ranks, announced in late October this year.
Apple announced the reshuffle and outlined all the new key roles of various executives. In the announcement, Apple stated that Scott Forstall, who headed all of iOS, would leave the company in 2013, and serve as an advisor to CEO Tim Cook in the interim. Forstall served at Apple for 15 years, and was regarded as a key executive.
Maps fiasco causes more heads to roll.
