The team over at The Amazing iOS6 Maps points out that there is one major advantage to Apple’s new maps app: It actually shows a few major cities in North Korea, whereas Google Maps does not.
You might have noticed as much in our recent post about the accidental floating defector. North of the 38th parallel: Empty beige space. South of the 38th parallel: Cities! Borders! Highways!
Apple should hype this as a major win. If I ever found myself lost in NoKo (it happens), I’m opening up Apple Maps before turning to the Big G.
wait — you can’t bring cell phones into the country. #WinFail
