Apple on Tuesday added a handful of new locations to the 3D Flyover feature in its iOS and OS X Maps apps. The new locations include San Juan, Puerto Rico and other cities around the world.

First introduced in Apple Maps when the app launched in 2012, the Flyover feature allows users to take close-up, 3-dimensional looks at buildings, landmarks and various other areas of interest.

The 7 new locations:

  • Almería, Spain
  • Braga, Portugal
  • Jerez de la Frontera, Spain
  • Karlsruhe, Germany
  • Kiel, Germany
  • Kingston upon Hull, England
  • San Juan, Puerto Rico

Apple has added Flyover support to more than 30 new locations in 2015, bringing the total number of 3D locations to 150. In April, the company added a number of new European cities to the list.

  • Why didn’t they add something usefull, like maps in thailand or north cyprus etc., instead of bullshit bingo gimmiks?

      Please tell me how an illegal state has priority over main European countries such as England and Germany.

      • Thailand is illegal? and even Google don’t care about politics when it comes to maps, it’s the information thats missing….

        I said “a”, that’s not plural.

      • Still there are no Maps for Thailand… Take a look at Google Maps and you can find them. Poor Apple…

      How easy is it for them to get the needed information in these locations?

      How do you know they aren’t already working on these destinations?

      • How easy was it for Google?

      • Byron C Mayes

        I don’t know. That would be why I’m asking.

        I do know it wasn’t all there overnight. Earth view hit Google Maps in 2010 — five years after Google Maps went live — and it wasn’t near complete coverage even though Google Earth had also been around since 2005. It took them ten years to get where they are now.

        Apple Maps debuted in 2012.
