Apple Maps

When Apple announced iOS 8 at WWDC earlier this month, the company did not talk much about Apple Maps, one of the apparent reasons for this is because new Apple Maps features were not ready to be announced at WWDC.

Apple are expected to add a range of new features to Apple Maps later this year, they may not launch with iOS 8, and may come in a separate update later in the year.

Now a new feature for Apple Maps in iOS 8 has been discovered, flyover city tours, and the video below shows the feature in action, the video was out together by Pierre Blasquez and Mac4Ever.

At the moment, only the cities of Rome, Stockholm, Barcelona, ​​New York, Paris, Glasgow, Cape Town, Perth, Bordeaux and the San Francisco Bay are available. One imagines that the visit was carefully prepared manually, and the list is therefore extend gradually over time.

This looks like a pretty cool feature for Apple Maps, and hopefully this is one of the features that will be launching with iOS 8 when it lands later in the year.

Apple have said that iOS 8 will launch this fall, and we are expecting it to be released in September, along with the new iPhone 6 and Apple iWatch.
