Why do you say this? Do you honestly think Google doesn't want their app on the iPhone? Articles I've read indicate that Google maps is used by almost twice as many Apple devices than Android, despite the latter having a larger installed user base? Why else would they create a YouTube App? The answer is because they have more to gain from the perceived Maps debacle than they do from the YouTube app (I personally preferred the browser interface anyway).
Or are you saying Apple will never let Google release a Maps app on iPhone ever? That worked well for Google Voice after the Feds investigated Apple's business practices.
Or are you saying Apple customers are not really that upset about Maps for it to matter how long Apple drags their feet to approve Google's offering?
I can certainly see Apple dragging their feet to approve it, but Google will submit a maps app, and Apple will ultimately approve it as long as it complies with all their terms, and they will do it before Google can file a complaint with the Feds.
Apple users seem pretty upset, but that could be media magnification, and only time will tell depending on how long it takes for widespread adoption of iOS 6 among the installed user base whether this dies down enough to thwart what seems like an obvious Google strategy.
