iPhone users are already finding new and exciting innovations packed inside Apple‘s iOS 11 during the software’s public beta, including the revamped Flyover Mode built into Apple Maps. Using the power of Apple’s new ARkit, the new feature gives users an expanded version of Google’s Street View that allows them to fly above buildings and bodies of water, giving a first-person view of a selected location. Flyover Mode also works with the movement of your phone, allowing users to control the view they’re seeing the same way they would control a 360-degree video.

The new version of the feature also includes a “Flyover Tour” mode that allows users to sit back and enjoy the view while the phone does all the work. To enable the feature, find a 3D supported area in Apple Maps and select the “Flyover” option.
