In iOS 15, Apple Maps got major upgrades like interactive global maps, 3-D maps in select cities to show three-dimensional details, enhanced navigation, and more. However, its 3-D maps were launched in select cities with the promise that the feature will be available in Philadelphia, San Diego, and Washington, D.C. later in 2021.
Now, the iOS and iPadOS Feature Availability’s support page enlists that the 3-D maps feature is available in Philadelphia, along with Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, and London. To commemorate Veteran’s Day, Apple Maps expanded the 3-D maps feature in Washington D.C. for users worldwide to explore landmarks and memorials like the World War II Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, or Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
