Apple has broadened the horizons of its native mapping service by bringing animated 3D imaging to Maps. Beginning in London with landmarks like Big Ben and the London Eye, it adds a nice, real-time feel to browsing in three dimensions, and in due course, should reach other major cities and iconic structures across the world.
Apple's WWDC keynote a couple of weeks back introduced a number of new and exciting features to the melting pot, and although nothing was explicitly mentioned about the new Flyover City Tours feature headed to the Maps app, the company did mention that its in-house mapping solution would be subject to some significant improvements across the board.

The infamous Apple Maps that the fruit company unveiled with iOS 6 has been under heavy fire during the time it has existed in the tech world, mainly for the wonderfully misleading directions that several users have reported over the course of their usage.

Google may be all set to bet the bank on Google Glass, but all the rumors suggest that Apple is set to come up with its own wearable technology, but not of the spectacled variety. If all the analysts are right, then Apple is set to announce a watch based on iOS. If they're really right, then it'll be an iWatch.
