Apple has just gone live with a new 3D “Flyover” city in Apple Maps, and it’s a big one: Paris, France.
Seems like we’ve been waiting for ages for this one. Ever since Apple Maps was launched with several major world cities depicted in 3D mode, users have been wondering why Paris wasn’t one of them. While we still don’t know what took so long, it’s impossible to argue with the quality of the finished product. Paris is fully rendered in all its 3D glory, and it’s one of the best-looking 3D cities Apple has presented yet. The chunk of land included in this update is enormous; one Apple Gazette reader estimated it at over 1,000 square miles.
You’ll find all of the Paris hotspots in full 3D, including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Versailles, Notre Dame, Disneyland Paris, the Champs-Élysées, the Arc de Triomphe, and much more.
Don’t forget, Apple Gazette has the most complete, most exhaustive list of 3D cities in Apple Maps you’ll find anywhere online. Many thanks to our loyal readers who pointed us to this massive update!
