Apple MapsApple is continuing to update the functionality in its iOS Maps app, though the most significant changes may not be noticeable to all users. The Loop published a list of cities around the globe that saw expanded, updated, or just plain new 3D flyover support in the last few months, ranging from Indianapolis, IN to Lyon, France.
