With Apple catching flack for removing Google Maps and replacing it with their own inferior mapping app, Microsoft has a chance to promote their own iOS mapping application which is built into their Bing app for iOS.

The Bing Maps app has generally been considered on par with Google maps so for now it is the best mapping application for iPhone 5 and iOS 6 users.

Note that Apple maps has turn by turn driving directions (spoken & live) which the Google Maps for iOS did not. So this is a major and welcome new feature for many people. Where Apple maps has gotten the most criticism is with searches and generally less attractive maps.
