    I'm wondering, is it legal for a company to ruin the product they manufactured after you have purchased it. I bought an iPad 2 with a wonderful app called Maps. It allowed me to do really neat things like drop a pin on the street I grew up on and the view a street level photograph of the house I grew up in. Then I stupidly upgraded the operating system to the next level, which I always thought was the smart thing to do, and now my wonderful google map with street level has be wiped out and replaced with a piece of crap that can't even find the Grand Canyon. Was there any warning per-upgrade? I don't think so. This is plain RUDE and tyrannical of Apple's part. Any up for a class action suit?

    There was plenty warning regarding Maps and YouTube. They were removed due to contracts with Google running their course. Also, if Maps is your only reason to own an iPad, it may not be the device for you...

    Welcome to iPF.

    Actually there was a warning pre-upgrade that Google Maps would not form part of iOS 6.
