When it made its efforts public in mid-2018, Apple had already spent four years overhauling its Maps data in the United States (see “Apple Is Overhauling Maps,” 29 June 2018). Now Apple says it has finished, and the improved US maps are available for all Maps users. Next on Apple’s radar is a set of improved maps for Europe. If you haven’t used Maps in a while, give it a try, since it has added substantially more detail with this update, as you can see in Apple’s animation.
Apple also noted that it has expanded support for Look Around, Apple’s answer to Google Street View. Look Around now supports New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston, and Oahu, with more cities on the way.
