Apple is one of those companies that constantly update its products. Silicon Valley-based does not hold back when it comes to releasing the most innovative products, its latest venture is 3D customized maps.
The company said today that the Apple Maps app will include a new 3D map of Washington, D.C. that will allow users to explore the city’s landmarks and memorials, including the World War II Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, and Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The new mapping experience is not yet evident, but it will most likely be short.
3D maps with Custom Designed Landmarks
Apple Maps received enhanced 3D maps with increased information and custom-designed landmarks in select locations, including Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and London, with the introduction of iOS 15 in September. The iOS 15 has proved to be one of the most features packed OS updates till now, the update enables users to carry out functions such as iPhone transfer without any trouble.
Moreover, Apple announced that the 3D maps would be available in several locations later this year, including Philadelphia, San Diego, and Washington, D.C., and that the feature would be showcased in Washington, D.C. today in honor of Veterans Day.
“Grateful today and always for the dedication and service of our veterans and their families, and the invaluable experience they bring long after they have left the military, including here at Apple,” Apple CEO Tim Cook tweeted today.
While users are ecstatic about the 3D maps, they are a few that are a bit disappointed. The maps are available in limited cities and by the time more areas are covered the old data will become outdated hence the usefulness of this function is being questioned. We will have to wait and see if Apple expands quicker than we expect or goes at an underwhelming slow pace.
