    I have a US phone but I can see multiple cities in 3D in Europe and Australia.

    They probably feel like they don't have enough of other countries' geography mapped to claim it as a feature outside of the US.

    I am aware of this.

    I mean, ONLY people in the US can SEE the 3D buildings.

    I think he means 3D building when doing turn by turn directions.

    Good to hear.

    http://www.apple.com/ios/feature-availability/#maps-3d-buildings

    Let's hope Apple has made a mistake on their website then.

    WOuld have thought this would have been bigger news because the 3D buildings in maps are a big selling point for me.

    It's not a mistake. They're just not touting it as a feature elsewhere because so little is mapped.

    No, they deem the rest of the world to be a toilet.
