Apple announced today that a new 3D map of Washington, DC in the Apple Maps app will allow users to explore the city’s landmarks and memorials, such as the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The new mapping experience does not appear to be visible yet, but it will probably be soon.

Along with the release of iOS 15 in September, Apple Maps got new 3D maps with more details and custom-designed landmarks in select cities, including Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco and London. Apple said the 3D maps would be rolled out to several cities later this year, including Philadelphia, San Diego and Washington, DC, and Apple showed a preview of the feature in Washington, DC today in honor of Veterans Day.

Apple celebrates Veterans Day with special content in the App Store, Apple Books app, Apple TV app and more. There is also a Veterans Day-themed Activity Challenge that Apple Watch users in the United States can complete by recording any workout for 11 minutes or longer today with the Workout app or any app that adds workouts to the Health app .
