Later this year, Apple is planning to oust Google Maps as the preloaded, default maps app from the iPhone and iPad and release a new mapping app that runs Apple's own technology, according to current and former Apple employees. Apple could preview the new software, which will be part of its next mobile-operating system, as soon as next week at its annual developer conference in San Francisco, one person familiar with the plans says.

I don't think many users will mind if it's better than that OpenStreetMap garbage that many mobile sites have foisted on us. I love the idea of OpenStreetMaps, but the quality is so far below what Google Maps offers it's unusable for me.
