Discovery in Apple Maps: with the Landmarks app

Since iOS 15, Apple Maps has gotten better and better. Two years ago, Apple also started introducing detailed models of points of interest in their Maps app. These cool 3D models can now be seen in various countries. Unfortunately, there are no detailed buildings in the Netherlands to view yet.

Still, it’s nice to see what can be seen in Apple Maps. That’s what AndrĂ© Baev and Simon Gardinier must have thought when they created the Landmarks app. With this Landmarks app, you no longer need to search Apple Maps to view the landmarks.

The app is available for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. You do need an iPhone with an A12 chip (or a Mac with M1) or higher to see the sights.

The app has a handy list of all landmarks in Apple Maps. By tapping the arrow at the top left, you will see a list of countries. Under each country you can immediately see in which places and how many sights there are to check. It is striking that most landmarks can be found in San Francisco. In Europe, Paris has the highest number of 3D models in the Landmarks app.

By tapping the arrow at the top right, you get a list of all the sights in the city. By swiping up you get a small menu with a few extra settings.
