Credit: Apple Inc.( Controversy over Jerusalem—most recently abound at the Democratic National Convention, where the party’s platform initially omitted but then restored language affirming the city as Israel’s capital—has now entered the world of technology as well.

The Algemeiner reported that Apple’s newly released operating system—the iOS6—contains a mapping feature listing Jerusalem as an unaffiliated city that is not part of any country, in addition to specifying no capital city for Israel. The Jewish state is the only country on “Apple Maps” with no capital.

Every country on Apple’s new maps except for Israel has a capital city marked with an encircled five-point star, according to the Algemeiner’s analysis.
