The point is that Apple chose to replace a good and reliable service with an inferior service when it's obvious that apples own map service is at beta quality, if not worse. Apples own system was launched prematurely
Yeah, there's a bunch of press coverage on this, but it's not clear *at all* that, for normal users, Apple Maps are inferior. They are fine in the US, and they provide turn by turn directions, which Google maps didn't do. For many users, this alone makes them superior.
