Updated Apple Map Provokes Controversy in Taiwan

Recently, the updated Apple Map has provoked controversy in Taiwan as it states Taiwan as a Chinese province.
The updated operation system of Apple is not welcomed by everyone, and Taiwanese are one of these. In the updated Apple Map, Taiwan is listed as ”Taiwan Province, China” on the map. Taiwan has contacted Apple and demanded for the correction, an official from Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said Tuesday. Furthermore, the simplified Chinese characters in the map app also upset Taiwanese as they write and read in traditional Chinese characters.
On Apple’s website, however, Taiwan is listed in traditional Chinese characters, and referred as a country “province” and “China”.
According to the saying of the Taiwanese official, they are still communicating with Apple, and said they would not compromise about this kind of matter.
