To tour a location in Flyover, fire up Apple Maps on your iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or Mac, search for a desired location, switch to the satellite view and zoom in close enough until you can rotate and pan around in 3D using your finger, or the navigation control in the bottom right corner of Apple Maps on OS X.

You should also check out the animated hand on London’s Big Ben clock and the rotating London Eye in Apple Maps. Additionally, Apple Maps in Iceland were recently spotted providing turn-by-turn directions.

Today’s update has expanded Flyover coverage to a total of 141 cities and landmarks around the world. A running list of Flyover locations is available on Apple’s iOS Feature Availability webpage.
