Apple Builds Facebook with iOS 6, Snubs Google Plus Social Network
Apple is ditching an important Google application off its iPhone and making friends with Facebook rather than Google’s social network, as it continues to distance itself from a bitter rival in the phone arena.
Google’s Maps application has resided on iPhone since Apple launched their very first version of the phone series in 2007.  It is one of the core apps on the phone, and users find it very useful.
Yesterday, however, Apple executives announced that Google Maps will be replaced by an Apple-developed app in iOS 6, the new operating system for iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touches, which will be released late this year.
The two giant companies, Google and Apple, are locked in a fight over the attention of hundreds of millions of phone users, and the opportunities in advertising that come with having map applications.

Smartphones from companies like Samsung and Google’s own Motorola division are the chief alternatives to the iPhone, which Apple has been suing in court, accusing them of imitating the iPhone’s ground-breaking features.
Apple also announced it is building Facebook into iOS 6, snubbing the Google Plus social network.
Users will soon be able to update their Facebook status and ‘like’ content in Apple’s iTunes store, Apple executives said.
The announcements were part of the keynote presentation during Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.
