Developer Ports iOS 6 3D Maps To The iPhone 4 [video]

Apple’s new Maps feature is arguably one of the most anticipated to come to iOS 6. However, its 3D integration won’t work on an iPhone 4. Until now.

Anton Titkov, an iOS developer in Russia, has found a way to get 3D Maps running on theiPhone 4. Dubbed 3DEnabler, the application requires users to jump through several hoops just to make it happen, including jailbreaking iOS 6 and installing third-party software. In other words, it won’t be easy.

Aside from 3D, Apple has said that its Maps’ turn-by-turn navigation also won’t be available on the iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS. So far, according to Russian site iGuides (Translate), which was first to report on the hack, Titkov hasn’t found a way to bring that functionality to the device.
