Apple announced an overhaul of its line of MacBook laptops and a new version of its mobile operation system for iPhones and iPads today at the World Wide Developers Conference in San Francisco.
The New York Times reports:
The new mapping system [in iOS 6] will provide drivers with turn-by-turn directions, a feature that has long been available in other smartphones. Apple created the 3-D view in its maps service, called Flyover, by shooting aerial photographs.
