Apple Adds New Flyover Locations in U.S., Mexico and Europe

Apple today added 11 new Flyover locations to Apple Maps on Mac and iOS, highlighting landmarks and features across several countries including France, Spain, Mexico, Belgium, the Netherlands, and the United States.

For those unfamiliar with the Flyover feature in Apple Maps, it lets users see photo-realistic 3D videos of select locations, with tools for zooming, panning, and rotating to get a closer look at notable landmarks and points of interest. Some of the locations listed may have previously been available as Flyover destinations, but were just added to Apple’s list of Flyover locations.

The full list of new Flyover locations:

– Monument Valley, Arizona

– Detroit, Michigan

– Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

– Pensacola, Florida

– Mazatlán, Mexico

– Annecy, France

– Gorges de l’Ardèche, France

– Antwerp, Belgium

– Münster, Germany

– Pamplona, Spain

– Utrecht, Netherlands

Flyover was introduced alongside iOS in 2012, but over the last three years, Apple has steadily added new Flyover locations to the Maps app. Earlier this year, Apple updated some major Flyover locations with real-time animated landmarks, making the Flyover experience even more immersive. Many Flyover locations have an additional City Tour feature that walks users through different landmarks in each city.
