Developer Demos iOS 8 Maps Hidden ‘Flyover City Tours’ Feature (VIDEO)

Developer Demos iOS 8 Maps Hidden ‘Flyover City Tours’ Feature (VIDEO)

While mentioned on a slide at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, “Flyover City Tours” wasn’t explored in detail at the event. While the feature isn’t available by default in the iOS 8 betas, developer Pierre Blazquez discovered how to unlock the feature, and published a video showing the feature in action for Paris.

City Tours can best be described as a guided-camera Flyover tour. When the tour is activated, the Maps app changes to satellite mode and begins zooming and panning to different landmarks in the city, giving a helicopter tour-like effect to the view. 

Currently, only the cities of Rome, Stockholm, Barcelona, ​​New York, Paris, Glasgow, Cape Town, Perth, Bordeaux and the San Francisco Bay are available. That list will likely grow over time, with a larger list of cities enabled by time of the official debut of the feature.
