Apple Updating iOS Maps With More Flyover Support, Navigation Improvements, More

Apple has been working away behind the scenes on its much maligned iOS Maps app. They’ve added flyover support for 15 new cities, updating 3D building rendering, turn-by-turn navigation, points of interest and other tweaks.

As reported by The Loop, Apple is continually updating its mapping service and has recently added a number of new cities that support the company’s proprietary 3D Flyover view.

New cities with Flyover support include:

  • Modesto, CA

  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Baltimore, MD
  • Minneapolis, MN
  • Portland, ME
  • Albany, NY
  • Buffalo, NY
  • Cleveland, OH
  • Tulsa, OK
  • Providence, RH
  • Green Bay, WI
  • Vancouver, BC
  • Cologne, Germany
  • Glasgow, Scotland

And Apple has expanded Flyover coverage in the following cities:

  • Birmingham, AL
  • Boston, MA
  • Portland, OR
  • Houston, TX
  • Toronto, ON
  • Copenhagen, Denmark
  • London, England
  • Lyon, France
  • Berlin, Germany
  • Munich, Germany
  • Rome, Italy
  • Barcelona, Spain
  • Madrid, Spain
  • Stockholm, Sweden

Updates also include a number of Chinese assets, with a new coloring scheme, Chinese character readability, point of interest tweaks, and road network changes.

Other improvements include expanded international points of interest with new iconography and more accurate address data.

We reported back in February that Apple’s map team had posted job listings that indicated they were working to improve their app. New hires included software engineers and fact checkers.

The company is working hard to fix the app after a shaky launch drew the ire of users worldwide. Complaints included multiple inaccuracies, poor implementation of the Flyover feature and various usability issues.
