Apple has reportedly fired Richard Williamson, the manager who was responsible for the faulty mapping app the iPhone and iPad maker released in September. Bloomberg, citing people familiar with the move, said that Williamson was pushed out by Senior Vice President Eddy Cue in a bid to restore customers' trust. Cue, who took over the division in a recent management shake-up, is asking outside mapping experts to help fix the app, and pushing maps provider TomTom NV to improve navigation data it gives Apple.
