Google's new iOS maps rumored to pin themselves in the App Store tonight

Attention blokes driving through the Australian Outback, Scott Forstall, or anyone else who needs to actually get where they're going: Google Maps may natively return to iOS as early as tonight, according to anonymous sources as cited by All Things D.

Not a whole lot to say other than it can't happen soon enough, and that it's been about a month since we heard Google's app was in late-stage testing after being ousted as a built-in feature over the summer. While Apple's foray into the wide wide world of mapping hasn't necessarily been an abject failure, neither has it been up to par with Google's product, or, for that matter, what we'd expect from Apple.
