Apple Maps Look Around is coming to Poland

According to the official Apple Maps Image Collection website and a photograph on Facebook showing an Apple Maps‌ survey vehicle, ground surveys for Look Around will be conducted in Poland until August of this year. The same website indicates that Apple Maps has begun conducting surveys of a bunch of European countries and cities, like Czech, Germany, Slovenia and Croatia.

The feature debuted alongside the iOS 13 update in 2019.

It’s unclear when the new street-level photography may go live for Polish Apple Maps customers. In May 2021, for example, Look Around launched in Atlanta, Georgia. The company is also gathering Look Around data in Hong Kong.

How to use the Look Around feature on Apple Maps

Available on the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac in select areas, Look Around is Apple’s version of Google’s Street View feature that lets you pan 360 degrees and move through the streets. If Maps has Look Around data for the location you’re currently viewing, simply hit the binocular icon on a map or information card to start an interactive 3D experience.

The Apple website maintains a list of cities and countries where Look Around is available.
