Recently, Google’s Chairman Eric Schmidt put a hole in the hopes of iPhone 5 users when he said that Google was not working on a Maps app for iOS 6. After the abysmal performance of Apple’s Maps, many had hoped that Google may ship out a Google Maps app soon. But, Google’s Executive Chairman has turned down any possibility. However, reports hint that Google may release a Maps app for iOS 6 by Christmas, despite Schmidt’s denial.

Schmidt was very clear when he said, Google has “not done anything yet” in creating an app for iPhone users. The ‘yet’ part is significant since it shows that Google’s decision to launch a Maps app for iPhone 5 may not be definite, or the company might have plans to eventually release a Google Maps app for Apple users.

According to reports, Google is indeed working on a Google Maps app for iPhone and iPad, and that this app is going to be rolled out before this year expires. In fact, Google may take the opportunity to release the app during the hyped winter season, specifically on the Christmas morning.

It is being said that the delay in bringing out the app is simply because Google is trying to merge the features of both Google Maps and Google Earth into this single app. This is done so as to furnish an apt alternative to Apple’s Maps which provide 3D views.

Another possibility could be that Apple ditched Google too suddenly, taking the Google Maps app out of the scene even when there’s still one year left in the contract between the two companies. This may have struck as something out of the blue and Schmidt kind of affirmed this when he said that there have been a lot of talks between the executives of two companies.

Google may have tried to persuade Apple but the latter was bent on introducing its own Maps. Now that Apple’s mapping solution is out in the open, the world knows well which of the two is better. And Google will certainly be able to scoop back all the lost users as soon as it releases its own app for iPhone and iPad.
