The map included in Apple’s new iOS6 operating system reportedly does not show Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Every other country on the map has its capital listed, The Algemeiner reported Tuesday. 

In addition, the world clock included in the operating system lists Jerusalem without an affiliated country -- the only city to be included that way, the paper said.

Apple's mapping program, which replaced Google Maps as the default application on the iPhone 5 released last week, has been widely panned by users because of missing or inaccurate information. Apple has said the intuitive program will improve over time with use.

Apple did not respond to JTA requests for comment.
