As noted today by MacRumors, the Look Around feature is now live in Phoenix, Arizona. With this feature, folks using Apple Maps can access a 3D street-level view of the major metropolitan city. This is Apple’s feature similar to Google’s fan favorite “Street View”, giving users the ability to see a particulate area right on their device as if they were standing there.
When Apple introduced Look Around with iOS 13 in Apple Maps, the feature was not available in many markets. However, the company has been working to expand the feature’s support all across the globe. In the United States, for instance, Look Around launched in Chicago, Illinois, in April of this year. And in June, Look Around launched in select areas in Europe and Asia.
Now, Look Around is available in 14 regions all across the world. You can see a full list of supported areas from Apple’s website.
Have you tried Look Around? Has it proven helpful for you? Do you think it’s as good as Google’s Street View?
