Not if they live in a large city and use public transit. That was the deal breaker with Apple Maps for me. I spend a lot of time in Chicago, but I don't live there, so I don't know all of the bus and el routes off the top of my head. Google Maps has that information, Apple Maps does not. Game over as far as I'm concerned.
I'm sure that a lot of people will keep using Apple Maps though. It's from Apple, so it must be the best, to heck with empirical evidence. I like Apple stuff myself, but come on. :-/
Also, to be fair, depending on where you live Apple Maps may be fine. Not if you happen to live in Australia apparently, but some places.
