Apple Maps does kaput once again. The drivers have been directed in Alaska over the runway at Fairbanks International Airport, thanks to the latest blunder from Apple’s mapping app. The airport was forced to put up barricades to stop drivers following Apple’s pseudo-guidance.

For the past three weeks, The Cupertino’s faulty app has been giving the potentially life-threatening directions to the poor users. Apple has barred directions around the airport from the app, and is working to sort out the fault.

But it got us pondering… When else has Apple messed up? Let’s have a look at some classic Apple mishaps.

Antennagate

In 2010, Apple’s then-new iphone 4 was full of new features, but the one that got all the attention wasn’t deliberated. It was a fault with the iphone’s antenna. If you get to hold the iPhone 4 a certain way, then the network strength would diminish, meaning you won’t be able to either make or receive calls.

To this blunder, Apple initially blamed the customers, saying those experiencing problems were not holding the device the correct way. When the protests continued for longer time, Steve Jobs made a statement that dodgy signal strength was just a part of “life in the smart phone world” and that “every gadget or device has its weaknesses”. In order to make peace with the disgruntled customers, Apple officials did refund the entire amount to them within thirty days of purchase. Apart from this free bumper cases were given to those keeping the handset, still it remains a like a black spot on the company’s record.

Let’s hope that Apple would try to fix the problem ASAP, else you never know, when the customers can knock the door of court.
