Apple extends Maps Flyover coverage to Paris, outlying areas
Thursday, May 9, 2013 @ 11:15am

Apple has extended Flyover coverage in iOS 6 Maps to Paris and several surrounding areas, reports say. Aside from Paris, other new detail regions include Versailles, Aulnay-sous-Bois, Disneyland Paris, and L'Ha˙-les-Roses. Flyover renders scenery in a rough 3D state, clarifying maps and giving a better sense for what an environment will look like in person.



It's uncertain if France is the only country to have received more Flyover coverage. Because of the way iOS 6 Maps works, Apple can push out new terrain without having to update the app itself. In past Flyover updates Apple has sometimes brought detail to several countries at once, but at other times it has concentrated on just a single region, such as Japan.
