Some of the updates in iOS 13, which were announced yesterday, are finally playing catch up with Google. One of the Apple updates includes a Street-View-like feature to Apple Maps.
With this particular Maps update, users will be able to pick a map location and launch a 360-degree photographic view of the immediate area. This is being called “Look Around” by Apple.
Look Around is being powered by a rebuilt basemap that is built “from the ground up.” According to Apple, this is the result of 4 million miles of new data, which delivers “broader road coverage, better pedestrian data, more precise addresses and more detailed landcover.”
Other new iOS 13 maps features include, “Collections to easily share favorite restaurants, travel destinations or places to shop with friends, and Favorites for navigating to frequent destinations, such as home, work, the gym or school, with a simple tap from the launch screen.”
