It appears that one app, social GPS service Waze, might have been affected by Apple’s new Maps app, but apparently doesn’t have anything to worry about because it’s a part of iOS 6 Maps:

We’ve confirmed this independently as well, Waze is definitely mentioned in the iOS 6 Legal Notice. Other apps included as sources in iOS 6 are: Intermap, LeadDog, Increment, Getchee, Localeze, MDA Information, Urban Mapping. These apps join TomTom in replacing Google entirely starting for consumers in the fall.
Waze could provide awesome social traffic data for Apple, giving you real-time information about what’s on the road ahead.
In addition to working with other map apps, iOS 6 Maps will also invite developers to tie their public transportation apps into the fold as well. It looks like Apple has chosen to play nice rather than destroy the competition.
