Apple Maps GasBuddy & GreatSchools 2 According to Apple’s Maps Feature Availability webpage, the company recently improved their in-house Maps, while adding 15 new locations to Flyover.

That’s right, Apple’s new Nearby local search feature has been extended beyond initial offerings in the U.S. and China to Australia, Canada, France and Germany. Nearby was introduced in Maps for iOS 9 as a proximity-based local search function that searches commonly queried points of interest like gas stations, bars and restaurants.

In addition, instead of users typing in specific terms, it will instead present a list of close-by businesses and places, split into different categories including Health, Food, Service and Shopping and much more. Moreover, Apple also added 15 new locations to its 3D Flyover feature, this includes the popular tourist destinations in Japan, the U.S., and Europe.
