While this Apple map application was also made default on the iPad 1, 2 & the New iPad.
The Official Apple maps application was full of errors and glitches that made old iOS fans purely frustrated. Apple hates to leave so many dissatisfied so they told users how to get Google Maps back on their homescreen.
