Tricky traffic circle

Apple famously took lots of heat last year when it launched a new Maps app with iOS 6 -- complete with some serious flaws. Photographer and computer engineer Peder Norrby collected some of the most intriguing-looking blunders he could find for a series called "iOS Maps Glitches."
