Apple Maps now shows 3D landmarks in Philadelphia

You can explore three-dimensional objects of major landmarks for any supported location in the city of Philadelphia, which currently includes the following places:

  • Fisher Fine Arts Library
  • 30th Street Station
  • One Liberty Place
  • Philadelphia City Hall
  • Philadelphia Museum of Art

Simply start exploring the city in Maps to appreciate these 3D landmarks, which are part of Apple’s deeper push with the Maps service in terms of mapping the world.

In September 2021, Apple announced new 3D navigation and exploration features for the Maps app on iOS 15, iPadOS 15 and macOS Monterey. The addition of three-dimensional objects for compatible locations is part of that effort.

Apple’s iOS and iPadOS Feature Availability webpage currently lists Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia and the San Francisco Bay area as the cities where Maps displays 3D landmarks. The iPhone maker is working on other enhancements for Maps, too.

Users in Germany, meanwhile, recently gained the ability to report incidents on Maps.
