Look Around, which was first introduced in iOS 13, provides 3D street-level imagery in cities where it is available, and it is similar to Google's Street View.

At launch, Look Around was limited to a handful of cities, but now it is available in 22 cities and regions around the world. Apple maintains a list on its website, but Maps enthusiast Justin O'Beirne also has a more frequently updated list.

Prior to the expansion in several new U.S. cities, Look Around previously became available in Southern Canada with the debut of the redesigned maps app in the country.

Uhh, it's in a grand total of 22 places, and that's not still considered just a handful?

I saw Apple Maps vehicles in Toronto in May 2019. It's nearly 2022, and the feature is still not available.

I think no matter how they try, they will never catch Google at this game, which is able to do what seem like yearly updates in a large city like Toronto.

It's also silly that they don't even have a browser version of Apple Maps, not usable outside of Apple devices. Doesn't help to spread awareness.

They did a great job on the Miami map. The pictures are more high res than google for sure. I’m not sure what the end goal is but they are slowly catching up. Generally i use Apple Maps, then when im on a longer trip Waze for the cop speed trap detection but I’m fully aware its run by google.
