Apple recently expanded its "Look Around" feature in Apple Maps to Phoenix, Arizona, providing 3D street-level imagery that's similar to Google's Street View.

phoenixlookaround
Look Around is a feature that was first introduced in iOS 13, but it was limited to a handful of cities at launch. Apple has been working to expand it, and it can now be used in 14 regions around the world, including San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Las Vegas, Houston, London, New York, and Oahu, with a full list available on Apple's website.

Apple has been slowly adding the Look Around feature to new cities. It expanded to Chicago in April and several cities in Japan in August. Though not yet mentioned on Apple's website, Look Around last week expanded to London, Dublin, and Edinburgh.

(Thanks, Brad!)

Apple Maps has so far replaced Google Maps on my iPhone for me. Not quite ready to delete Google Maps yet, but it's getting there.

I like Apple Maps. It has been accurate for me. Hopefully, the ‘Look Round’ feature will come to my area before the next ice age.

Just looked around a bunch of familiar places. Really is leaps and bounds better than street view in image quality and that parallax/3D effect. Hope to see it more widely available nationally and internationally asap.

Holy cow Apple is slow. Are they rendering these by hand? Google did this so much faster. Street view is the only google maps I still use but at this rate I cannot change over for 15 years.

At this glacial pace, we are looking at 2100 to have this live throughout US. 2200 World Wide

If the tech and data collection work, go crazy and let it rip
