Apple had initially planned on launching turn-by-turn navigation in Australia this month, but the company’s Maps availability page now states the feature will not hit Australian shores until November.
Australia is now the only country on the list without turn-by-turn navigation in Apple’s iOS 6 Maps app, with Macau, Malaysia, Brunei, Egypt, Morocco, South Africa, Taiwan and Thailand each receiving the update during October.
Apple CEO Tim Cook issued a public apology for the Maps app in September, after outcries from users condemning the move from Google Maps in iOS 6.
In a press statement this morning Cook announced the departure of iOS chief Scott Forstall, a move the Wall Street Journal believes is a result of Fortsall refusing to sign his name to the apology letter.
Alongside the navigation delays in Australia, Apple appears to have missed the October deadline for iTunes 11 it announced at its September media event.
