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
- Press and hold the Home button or say "Hey, Siri" to activate Siri.
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.
Tap the map.
- If Flyover is supported, tap on Flyover button next to the Directions button in the information panel at the bottom of the screen.
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.
