One video shows how AR can point out major landmarks in your area, while the other video gives an example of how people will be able to navigate by following lines.
We don’t know how it will work yet, but have some speculation about the upcoming new feature.
You can quickly notify emergency services and your loved ones when things go wrong.
Maps gives us a taste of augmented reality in iOS 11 beta. Okay, Apple hasn’t made its ARKit technology fully available yet. Still, that can’t stop Cupertino from including the technology in the latest beta of iOS 11. To see it, you need only do a Flyover in one of the supported cities. Interestingly, not all of the listed cities are still available for Flyover – Akron, Ohio was not, but Cleveland, Ohio was. When you tap Flyover, you’ll enjoy an AR-fueled view. You’ll love flying over the buildings like a superhero as you walk around panning and tilting your iPhone camera. It’s definitely worthy of the name “Cool Stuff Found.” Watch it in action below, and be sure to look at our coverage of other ARKit demonstrations available. Tip o’ the hat to Leon Nisenfeld, a MGG listener and follower on Facebook, for cluing us into this find.
This early-phase build is likely to contain a mix of bug fixes, as well as tweaks and different implementations of new iOS 11 features.
We found some more videos showing some really cool demonstrations of ARKit in action.

iOS 11 public beta is available for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch so anyone with a compatible device can install it and help track down bugs and broken features. Before you install it, however, you should have a good backup in case something goes wrong. Abhi Sirothia walks you through the process and shows you what it takes to get the public beta installed and running.
Introduced at WWDC 2017 as part of iOS 11, Apple’s ARKit will provide the tools for developers to tap into the increasingly popular and important world of augmented reality. And now that the iOS 11 betas are in developers’ hands, we’re getting some amazing first looks at what AR on the iPhone and iPad will soon deliver. One of the coolest is AR Measure, a tape measuring app that is way cooler than it sounds. Check out the video demo, below.
Apple released the first public beta of iOS 11 on Monday, following through on its promise to give users a taste of the next major iPhone and iPad operating system.
If you have an older iPhone or iPad running iOS 11 Developer Beta 2 there’s a good chance you’re seeing an update today.
Apple’s motivation for removing the handy feature, as well as the permanence of the its absence, are unknown. But, hey, it’s a beta.
Only a few airports and malls are currently supported, but Apple will be adding more as the public release of iOS 11 approaches.
