IT House May 25 news, according to MacRumors, in iOS 15, the Apple Maps app includes the ability to use augmented reality (AR) walking routes in some big cities, and today we learned that Tokyo, Japan has become the latest location where users can use it.
AR mode uses the iPhone's rear camera to map walking routes to the real world, making it easier for you to see where you need to go in building areas and reducing the need for users to look down at their smartphones as they move.
Maps of other Japanese cities may have been updated outside of Tokyo, but it's hard to know without looking at them in the field.
To start a walking route, iPhone users can lift their devices and scan surrounding buildings when prompted. Step-by-step instructions will automatically appear in AR mode, which makes it easier for you to get to where you need to go, especially if the direction is unclear.
According to the Apple Feature Availability page, AR walking routes are available in London, Los Angeles, Montreal, Philadelphia, New York, San Diego, san Francisco Bay Area, Singapore, Toronto, Vancouver, and Washington, D.C. Tokyo, Japan, has not yet been included in the list.
