Apple Maps introduces new ways to explore major cities in 3D in Augmented Reality (AR)

iOS 15 adds exciting Augmented Reality (AR) navigation instructions to the recently updated Apple Maps. Users will be able to scan buildings in their area, and the Maps app will generate highly accurate coordinates to provide detailed routes that can be viewed in the context of the real world.
On September 27, Apple announced new ways that iPhone users can explore major cities in 3D. With the recent release of iOS 15, Apple Maps has received the biggest update ever, part of which consists of immersive walking routes displayed in augmented reality (AR), as well as new urban experiences that offer more detailed information, driving routes with improved navigation, and much more.
The update is now available in London, Los Angeles, New York and the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as in other cities.
The new immersive walking routes will provide users with step-by-step walking instructions in augmented reality, allowing users to simply lift their iPhones to scan buildings in the area. The maps will then generate a highly accurate position to provide detailed guidance that can be viewed in the context of the real world. In addition to AR navigation, the update also adds several other new features to the Apple Maps app, including 3D maps that will allow users to navigate through cities with a 3D representation of the city that includes altitude information, new road markers and hundreds of custom landmarks. Other features have also been added, such as improved navigation, public transport updates, carefully selected guides and a new interactive globe. Currently, there are more than 1 billion active iPhones in use in the world, it would be fair to assume that a significant number of people will be content with the pre-installed Apple Maps app on their device. Today’s update means that augmented reality functionality will now be available to even more users who may not have previously realized the benefits that technology can offer.
