Apple Maps Store Information
Apple Maps Store data is not always reliable.
Apple Maps has a rough start on iOS. It shipped with IOS 6 back in 2011 and had some well publicized problems. Things seems to have been fix and the application has seemed to be reliable.
However this weekend I noticed another flaw in the company details section. When checking for the hours of American Girl in Natick on a Saturday night - Apple Maps said the business was closed at 6 pm.
We were eating dinner next door to American Girl and noticed people coming in with American Girl bags - was the store still open?
We we checked the American Girl website and discovered that it closes at 9 pm on a Friday night.
I doubled checked Apple Maps and it does say 6pm. I then checked Google Maps and saw they had the correct closing time for American Girl.
Here's a side-by-side comparison:
Don't trust Apple Maps for business times - this isn't the only local business that had the incorrect times.
When it really matters used the company website to find the right time. Only use the maps apps as a general information.
