Siri can whisk you away on an adventure around the world without you having to leave your house.

The Maps app that comes built-in to every iPhone and iPad can show incredibly detailed 3D maps that you can interact with through a feature called Flyover. If you ask Siri to show you a supported destination, she will take you straight to it from the Lock screen.

How to access Flyover on your iPhone or iPad with Siri and Maps

  1. Press and hold the Home button or say "Hey, Siri" to activate Siri.
  2. Say something like "Show me a map of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France." — use whatever landmark, city, or area you'd like to view.

    Siri will show you the location on a map.

  3. Tap the map.

  4. If Flyover is supported, tap on Flyover button next to the Directions button in the information panel at the bottom of the screen.
  5. Use Flyover to view high-quality 3D mapping of the area and pan-and-zoom to explore.

Keep in mind that not all areas in all countries support flyover. So if you don't see a button for Flyover, that area may not be supported.
