Apple Maps Flyover coverage expands to Helsinki, Cape Town

updated 10:07 am EST, Wed January 15, 2014

3D scenery gradually becoming more universal

Apple has added two new cities to the areas covered by Maps' Flyover feature, users note. These include Helsinki, Finland and Cape Town, South Africa. The official list of cities with Flyover support has yet to be updated, but Apple hasn't made any changes to it in some time, despite constant service improvements during 2013.

One omission from the official list, for example, is Paris; Canada as a country is omitted entirely. Throughout the past year, Apple added cities in Canada, France, Spain, the UK, and the US.

Flyover lets users with compatible Mac or iOS devices see a 3D view of scenery that can be rotated or zoomed at will. The feature debuted with iOS 6 Maps in 2012, but initially covered just a handful of cities, like San Francisco and New York City. Maps made the jump to Macs last fall with OS X Mavericks.
