Google Maps' Street View on Safari for iOS 6  (Source: appleinsider.com)
As of now, most geographic areas in the U.S. and Canada are included in the Street View option

Many iOS 6 users have expressed their longing for Google Maps features since Apple decided to release its own mapping service for the new OS, and now, Street View has been made available via the Web app version.

IOS 6 and iPhone 5 users can now use Street View once again on Google Maps' Web app, which is accessible through Safari's built-in search function or the Google Maps homepage.

Through Safari, users can bring up the map for a satellite view of an area they've searched. In the bottom right-hand corner, a new stick figure icon shows up alongside other basic mapping tools, and by pressing this, the Street View option opens in a new window. According to reports, the panning and scrolling tools are intuitive, but there is no zoom.

Google Maps' Street View, which offers a 360-degree street level view of various cities, rolled out for many areas throughout the day. As of now, most geographic areas in the U.S. and Canada are included.

Last month, Google announced that it would bring a Google Maps app to iOS 6 users in a couple of months while it works on a new version for the OS. Google Maps was the previous mapping service of choice for iOS users, but Apple dropped the bomb on Google this year when it announced plans of deploying its own mapping service in iOS 6.

Once iOS 6 was released in early September, users noticed many problems, such as geography that didn't match that of Earth's and a poor navigation system. Apple took a lot of heat, and Google's Exeutive Chairman Eric Schmidt even said that Apple should've stayed with Google Maps.
