Yes, Apple will approve Google Maps for iOS. (Or, why that Guardian story from today doesn't get it.)

Yet they won't approve things like home screen replacements or third-party keyboards...you know, things that WON'T guide you into oncoming traffic if they're not updated.
 
Are you sure about that? Apple is so acting like a brat that they might just throw a tantrum and reject it for any reason.
 
There may be some back-and-forth negotiation over details, and the app likely won't be as fully featured as Google Maps for Android. But as I argue, Apple would have little interest in starting that particular fight, and in fact has gone out of its way to recommend the Google Maps web app.
 
I makes sense. It's just that Apple has become so sneaky, that you can expect anything from them.
