Apple has added some nice new touches to Apple Maps with animated 3D imagery for iconic landmarks starting with the UK. Apple Maps now shows the correct time on Big Ben and a rotating London Eye when users viewing the landmarks access the app’s 3D Flyover feature.
Videos showing off the animated London Eye and Big Ben in Apple Maps are below:
These latest additions to Maps follow Apple adding new locations for its Flyover feature that offers high resolution 3D imagery of select locales. Earlier this month it added new Flyover cities across North and South America and Europe.
In other recent Maps improvements, Apple recently added new data providers including GasBuddy and GreatSchools. It also recently opened up its Apple Maps Connect feature to new countries and languages allowing businesses to submit their info for local listings.
