Apple misses mark in Dunedin

Apple Maps is still misplacing Dunedin International Airport in the Octagon almost two years after the problem was first reported.

Airport chief executive John McCall said it was frustrating Apple had not fixed the problem after it raised the issue with the company in 2012.

''We raised it with Apple and have absolutely got nowhere,'' Mr McCall said.

He had ''no idea'' why the airport's location still came up as the Octagon when people searched for it on Apple Maps, but had a simple solution.

''Go to Google [Maps].''

The error was reported in the Otago Daily Times in September 2012 after Apple took over as the default provider of maps software on iPads and iPhones.

The launch of the software was plagued by problems around the world, but Apple has since worked to fix issues which included highways that ended in the middle of nowhere and towns in the wrong location.

Apple did not respond to a request for comment yesterday.
