Bangalore: The year 2012 was filled with high octane tech launches, iPhone 5, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, Android Jelly Bean, iPad mini and a plenty more. Each event was festive. Then there were other events too, where tech companies came out public about their follies and said “please forgive us users”. Read on to know 14 such tech companies who did public apologies as compiled by Network World.



#14 Apple

Apple’s iPhone 5 and iOS 6 were most awaited Apple products of the year. But somewhere down the line Apple fans went queasy over buying iPhone 5 and updating their OS to iOS6, for these Apple products left out the omniscient Google Maps. The fans were more annoyed when they discovered the biggest flaws in Apple’s mapping service.  



Apple CEO promised to make up for this and apologized: "At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers. With the launch of our new Maps last week, we fell short on this commitment. We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better."
