iPhone UpNext Maps shows you what's inside buildings

According to 9to5Mac, "UpNext Maps really is a game changer and it takes the whole concept of iOS maps to a new level" and “UpNext Maps is 3D awesomeness”. What's interesting is that UpNext Maps shows you what's inside buildings, even inside stadiums. Location positioning (the blue dot) is accurate to where you are in the building.  You can pick what level (floor) you're on too!
