With iOS 6′s launch came a new Maps program which split Google and Apple up after many years of reliance upon each other. Whether it’s a simple case of Apple wanting to do something better, or a consequence of the two being involved in so many legal spats doesn’t really matter. My own experience of Maps has been fantastic in the beta software, except when it came to 3D “Flyover” cities.
The number of cities with 3D “Flyover” capability was incredibly low. But as new beta versions of Apple’s 6th generation platform are released, new cities are added. With beta 4 came Philadelphia, Boston, Portland, Atlanta, Phoenix, Houston, Dallas, New Orleans, Toronto, Manchester and Birmingham (UK – YEY!) and Lyon (France).
Personally, I’ve only just managed to get the software update downloaded on my iPhone, so I’ll update this post with images during the day, once beta 4 is installed on my iPad. Anyone else still struggling to download the 4th beta?
