Apple maps is back in the news and still in need of direction.

A few months ago Apple kicked Google maps to the curb and began relying on its own navigation app. Unfortunately the company hit a few roadblocks in the form of roads that no longer exist and unnecessary detours. Then Apple seemed to smooth out the road and get people heading in the right direction; until now.

According to the British newspaper “The Independent” Apple's map app is misleading drivers again and steering them right down an airport runway.
