When Apple replaced Google Maps with its own Maps in iOS 6, many called it an unwise decision. And since the release of iOS 6, this has proved quite true. iOS users all around the globe are lambasting Apple for having dished out a very poor mapping service in place of Google Maps. Apparently taking a lesson from it, Apple is now aggressively hiring ex-Google employees to work on its Maps.

Google Maps

Google Maps has been around for quite some time and Google currently employs some 7100 people to work on its mapping application. These include 1100 full-time employees and 6,000 contractors. Naturally, Apple is the new kid in this arena and has only a fraction of that number working on its Maps. But the Cupertino-based company has plans of expanding the scale of its personnel and operations.

TechCrunch’s Darrell Etherington has been hinted by a source who has worked on Google Maps, that Apple is going after former Google employees who have worked on Google Maps and is trying to hire them through very lucrative pay scales.

Naturally, people who have worked on Google Maps already have a long and valuable experience of creating a top-class mapping application. And once Apple hires such personnel, if may finally be able to dish out a similarly competitive service for the iOS users.

While Apple still has a lot of catching up to do, given the rather abysmal performance of its current iteration of Maps, the company can indeed come head-to-head with Google in the coming years.
