Apple MapsApple’s Maps app continues to ingratiate itself with iPhone users. This time, customers in Taiwan are offended that the software describes their country as a providence of China.

iPhone users in the island country noticed the issue and reported it to local media. Eventually Taiwan’s foreign ministry noticed the error, and pointed it out to Apple, who has not yet commented on the matter.

This is most likely an innocent mistake, and certainly not political commentary. We expect Apple will address the issue.
