The Google Earth app is extraordinarily famous on the iOS stage, with a huge number of reviews on the App Store, and the organization has at last refreshed its application to support the 64-bit iPhone and iPad CPUs. This implies that the app would now be able to keep running on iOS 11, signaling a step in the right direction for Google Earth.

As well as much-needed architectural compatibility, the update brings a redesign and several new flagship features, including Flyover-Esque 3D views of major cities and ‘Voyager’ guided tours.

Google Earth was a standout amongst the most downloaded 32-bit applications on the App Store until today. Its destiny was in serious doubt when Apple reported plans to completely drop compatibility with 32-bit applications earlier this year.

The Google Earth application had gotten just six updates over the last five years, leading many to believe that Google would basically resign the application when Apple pressured it into taking a potentially rash action (Google apparently commits most of its iOS mapping assets to Google Maps application).

Notwithstanding, that has turned out not to be the situation as rendition “9.0.78” discharged today includes the vital 64-bit app support in time for iOS 11’s public rollout in September.

The new Voyager feature offers guided tours around huge milestones and Points of Interest. There are more than 50 stories to investigate, talking about different logical and environmental issues influencing the planet today.

The 3D model is precisely like Flyover from Apple Maps, enabling clients to skillet through a 3D situation of real urban communities, featuring real historical points and structures (counting the work-in-advance Apple Park as presented previously). One advantage Google Maps has is that users can jump directly from the 3D view into Street View, a service Apple Maps still doesn’t offer.

Users can likewise make a digital postcard of an area utilizing the Camera button to impart to companions. This update additionally brings a crisp new icon to the user’s home screen.

The new Google Earth app is available for free in the App Store for iPhones and iPad. Some features require you to sign in to a Google account.
