Yosemite National Park and Wellington, New Zealand Added to Apple Maps Flyover Feature [iOS Blog]
August 19, 2014 § Leave a comment
Apple has added two new locations to its Maps Flyover feature in iOS, including Yosemite National Park in California and Wellington, New Zealand. The new additions to Flyover allow users to take a close 3D look at the areas, zooming in on important buildings and landmarks.
Flyover data for Yosemite National Park comes as Apple prepares to launch OS X Yosemite, the newest version of its Mac operating system. As of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Apple began naming its operating system updates after major California landmarks and with OS X Yosemite set to be released to the public later this year, it makes sense to add Yosemite’s Flyover data to Maps.
With the addition of two new locations, Apple now provides Flyover data on more than 90 parks and cities around the world, with a full list available on its iOS 7 Feature website.
Over the last several months, Apple has been hard at work improving its Maps app. Users have reported significant improvements in Apple Maps data, with errors being fixed quickly and new Points of Interest popping up. Apple also made notable updates to Maps in China, Japan, and other countries earlier this year.
