According to Bloomberg, Apple has fired Richard Williamson, head of the new Apple Maps in iOS 6. While Apple is looking for a replacement, Eddy Cue has taken over responsibility of Apple Maps.

Eddy Cue is Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, meaning he is head of the iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks, iCloud, iAd and Siri, which makes him one of the company’s key employees.

Williamson is not the first person who had to leave his post after the massive criticism of Apple Maps. A few weeks ago, Scott Forstall, who was the senior vice president of iOS Software at Apple, was fired. Rumors has it that he was fired when he refused to issue a public apology for the map failure. Instead, Apple CEO, Tim Cook, had to sign the statement.

Since Apple Maps was released on September 19, Apple has implemented a large number of changes to fix the appearance and functionallity of the app. There is, however, a lot of work to be done before Apple Maps can match Google Maps.
