iOS 6 Beta: First Look
Maps: Stability And Battery Life Use
iOS 6 uses the same TomTom maps as the ones in the popular TomTom iOS navigation application. I've been using the application nearly every day to get turn-by-turn walking and driving directions from current locations to my destinations. Maps isn't ready for prime time; it has crashed on me nearly every time I've run it, sometimes immediately after launch. Right now at least, Maps also drains battery life. My phone ran through nearly 80% of a full battery in just under three hours.
