🔗 Apple Maps errors show small businesses as closed down — 9to5mac.com // Ben Lovejoy

Apple Maps errors have reportedly been costing small businesses thousands of dollars, by incorrectly showing them as permanently closed.

The restaurant said the mistake cost them around AU$12,000 (almost US$8,000).

A stark reminder that our reality is already augmented by the apps we use. If Maps says it’s closed, the reality almost doesn’t matter. You’re probably not going to check.
