Google Earth Update Brings 3-D Flyover Maps To iOS

Google Earth app for iOS has just received a major update, bringing 3-D flyover maps to Apple’s mobile platform. These 3-D maps are currently available for select U.S cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, California and some other cities like Rome. However, not every iOS device will get this 3-D map update. Rather, the 3-D maps will only render on the iPhone 4S, the iPad 2 and the third-generation iPad.

From the iTunes description:

With new 3D imagery, you can now fly through complete 3D recreations of select cities, including San Francisco, Boston, Rome, and others. With every building modeled in 3D, you truly get a sense of flying above the city. 3D imagery is available on iPhone 4S and iPad 2 or later.

What’s New in Version 7.0.0

• Tour guide: Explore places you never thought to search for with new tours of your favorite cities, historic landmarks and natural wonders.

• 3D imagery: Take flight above entire cities in 3D. Get started with Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Geneva or Rome and look for new additions in the coming weeks. Available for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 or later.
