Apple Maps Flyovers

The 3D Flyover feature of Apple Maps on the Mac and in iOS is a fun way to view a city. By using the 3D textures of buildings rendered from actual flyover photography, you can get a little tour of the major sights.

    Hi Gary,

    It would really help the functionality of Flyover if Apple provided a clickable icon that brought up a list of locations that had Flyover. Or, even better, a world map with a labeled icon next to every Flyover location. Have you heard any rumors of this feature being added to Flyover?

      I haven’t heard any rumors about that, no. Perhaps Apple is waiting for a more impressive list of cities before developing something like that.

        Hi Gary,

        I did a very quick Google search and came up with this web site that tries to keep a current list of all Flyover locations.

        http://flyovercities.com

        I suspect there are other websites that try to keep an up-to-date list of Flyover locations. Maybe your readers know of others.

          Hi guys,

          The link for the full list of cities is also on Apple’s website is at http://www.apple.com/ios/feature-availability/#maps-flyover and you can scroll up from there for the full schedule of all iOS8 features. I haven’t yet found an Apple webpage for OS X with the Maps Flyover list, but the iOS link works well.

      Not sure what the issue could be. Have you tried other cities? Are you using the latest versions of everything?
