Google Maps might make its long-awaited return to the iPhone and the iPad on Wednesday night, according to a report.
All Things D says unnamed sources have confirmed Google Inc. plans to release its Maps app for Apple's iOS mobile operating system Wenesday night.
If that is indeed the case, there will probably be many happy iPhone users.
They have had to deal with Apple Maps since the Cupertino, Calif., company gave the pre-installed Google Maps app the boot in mid-September with the release of iOS 6.
IPhone users quickly became frustrated because Apple Maps didn't seem to provide nearly as much information as Google Maps, its "Flyover" 3-D imaging feature didn't work correctly and commonly gave inaccurate information.
