    This is a thread for people lucky enough to try the new Apple maps app in beta 3 and let everyone know if it’s good or their thoughts on it :)

    The app looks/works the same. The data for part of California looks to be very much more detailed.

    Any street view or anything like that? What’s the satellite view like?

    No street view, no. Unfortunately I can't compare satellite imagery from b2 and b3 as I'm all b3 now. Perhaps someone else still on iOS 11 or iOS 12 PB1 or DP2 can post some images in the region for comparison.

    Satellite view is great. The 3D satellite view is amazing.

    Some screen record from my iPad Pro. Some of the area around Apple Park. I was impressed with the second one and what seems to be the parking garage, that the satellite imagery got the sides peeking in a bit.

    I’m running beta 3 here in San Francisco and I don’t see any changes to the maps from iOS 11. I notice the maps app flashes when I scroll around the map of the city, like it’s trying to show the new data, but it still stays the same. Any thoughts?

    Edit: looks like switching to satellite and back fixed it.

    Does the “new” Maps still insist on opening everything in Yelp?

    God, that’s annoying.

    Hi, how did you manage to post a screen record in here? Everytime I try, it gives an error on macrumors

    Here’s a quick screenshot I took in San Francisco. A lot more detail than beta 2.

    I’m not sure the satellite view is any more detailed than previous versions. It looks the same on my iOS 12 PB1.

    I uploaded them to vimeo and posted the links here.

    If you look at the video segments there, you can see a 'vimeo' click-through (you can click on it and watch it on vimeo at higher resolution).

    It's possible. I haven't looked at satellite 3d stuff in a while. I was impressed with how close to the buildings I was able to get, and how complete the imagery was even when I rotated around in 360 degrees and able to see into the garage, from between both of the large parking structures.

    The vector maps are clearly more detailed (even the original article up here on MR showed an impressive before/after).

    I don’t think they’ve updated anything other than the base maps yet. The TechCrunch article/interview said as much. No jarring changes until they have wider coverage.

    Here’s a screenshot from everythingapplepro’s latest video comparing the Moss Beach area between betas.

    It may be out tomorrow (July 5th) as the 4th is an American holiday and Apple most likely wouldn’t release it on a holiday.
