Google got kicked off the iPhone by Apple with the release of iOS 6. Apple has now its own Map apps. Apple's Maps app is not mature yet as consumers found many map errors. iPhone users want the Google Mapsapp back and Google is busy making that a reality soon.
According to the Wall Street Journal, Google is already distributing test version of the new Google Maps app to outside testers. This would imply that a release could still happen this year. It would be nice christmas gift from Google for iPhone users.
TNW reports that the new iOS Google Maps app will have turn-by-turn navigation.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
