Apple has fired the manager in charge of its controversial mapping software, according to a new report.  Bloomberg said Apple Senior Vice President Eddy Cue recently fired Richard Williamson, who was in charge of the company’s maps software for iOS.

Williamson had been with Apple since 2001 and at Steve Jobs’ NeXT Computer before that and was the senior director of Apple’s iOS services team.  In October Apple announced that its iOS chief Scott Forstall would be leaving the company as part of a larger executive shakeup.

We reported Apple’s CEO Tim Cook publicly apologized for Maps in late September and even suggested alternatives to Apple Maps, noting that it “fell short” of the company’s commitment to provide the “best experience possible” to users.

Williamson appears to be the latest fall guy in Apple’s attempt to set its image straight.  This is Apple trying to prove they are just as strong without Jobs. Apple is setting an example to shareholders, employees, investors and customers.
