Apple is continuing to update the functionality in its iOS Maps app, though the most significant changes may not be noticeable to all users. The Loop published a list of cities around the globe that saw expanded, updated, or just plain new 3D flyover support in the last few months, ranging from Indianapolis, IN to Lyon, France. For those iOS users who actually use flyover on a regular basis, the list is an encouraging sign that Apple is paying attention, though some of us wish the company would prioritize fixing some of its inaccurate mapping data. The list of 16 locales that gained 3D flyover support includes Baltimore, Tulsa, the Hoover Dam, and Glasgow, Scotland. (I can’t wait to zoom in and fly around the Hoover Dam every day before my morning commute.) The 14 places that saw expanded coverage are mostly European cities like Stockholm, London, Rome, Berlin, Toronto, and Barcelona.
