Apple animates two London landmarks in Maps 3D Flyover

When viewing the Flyover tour of the London Eye, users will now be able to observe the Ferris wheel spinning. It's easiest to observe when you tap and hold on the screen to pause the Flyover. Big Ben, formally Elizabeth Tower, will display the current time in London on its clock faces.

This feature is reportedly coming to attractions in other cities over the next few weeks, according to The Daily Mail, though the publication didn't name any cities in particular.

Apple has been making a number of additions and improvements to Maps recently. Earlier this week the company added Flyover support to nine more cities, and they have recently added partners to help users find lower gas prices and good schools.

  • When I saw that Edinburgh was one of the cities added, I thought I'd have a look. Flyover is , to say the least, dreadful. The area between the Balmoral hotel and Waverley Station has a long hump where there isn't one. I hate to say it but Google Maps leaves Apple Maps trailing. You'd think Apple would have gotten this sorted before launch these updates.
  • Pretty neat, thanks!
