iOS 8 introduced 3D Flyover tours of various cities around the world, but they were guided in a sense - they flew you around the city as you sat back and watched. In iOS 11 you can control your flyover (though the guided flyovers are still available). To do so, search for a city, then tap the Flyover button. You can start the guided flyover with the "Start City Tour" button or control your own motion simply by tapping elsewhere on the screen.
One-handed zoom can be useful in plenty of situations. To use it, simply double tap the screen but keep your thumb on the screen after the second tap (so double tap and hold), then slide your thumb up to zoom in or down to zoom out. Once you release you will have to double tap again to use the feature again.
With every new iOS release come several new features that Apple enthusiastically introduces during its annual WWDC event, while a plethora of smaller features go unmentioned. The introduction of iOS 11 followed suit, spotlighting major changes to Control Center and screen shots, new AirPod controls and Screen Recording.
When finding directions from point A to point B, the Maps app will by default choose the shortest (time-wise) route. You can, however, have it choose routes that avoid tolls and even highways if you prefer a more back-roads approach. Here's how to do it:
1. Open up Maps and find the directions you want as you normally would, then swipe the route tab up to reveal other routes and options.
The iOS Maps app allows you to easily check your own coordinates or the coordinates of any dropped pin simply by tapping on the blue dot that represents you or any pin that you have dropped. After tapping, drag the information up to see your coordinates in decimal degrees. Use the Compass app to see them in degrees, minutes seconds (DMS).
