That appears to be for the iPhone 4, which came with Google's maps.

Apple maps have only been out a little over a year. If that. The iPhone 4 came out before that. It had Google maps on it.

It was first available back in in June this year with the beta of iOS 6. The iPhone was released 2 years earlier and came with iOS 4 and the Google based app.

even though the iphone 4 shipped with google maps that tips site is for ios 6 and apple maps not google maps.

it could just be that when they updated the page for ios 6 they didnt remove the street view snippet from the page

All I can say is I'm running IOS 6.1 and it doesn't have street view. It has 3D view you can zoom in on but as far as "Street View" that might be a trademark of Google.

Same text and screenshot on iPhone 5 tips page as well. http://www.apple.com/iphone/iphone-5/tips/ Maybe 6.1 will have it!

Very odd considering the rest of the page/ images have been updated to iOS 6 (and the map even shows Apple's, not Googles), but it's likely just a bad copy and paste job that will likely be fixed soon.

iPhone 4 runs iOS 6 just fine--it doesn't really matter what version of iOS was around when then phone was released.

That said, chances are it's wording that was left over from tips/promotional information related to the maps app prior to iOS 6 and when Apple was updating it for iOS 6 they might have overlooked some small parts, like a couple of words referring to street view (which was there with pre-iOS 6 maps app based on Google Maps).

At the same time, that is also not to say that Apple won't roll something out (with time likely) that would be similar to street view that Google has for their maps.

Almost certainly. I cannot see Apple copying a name so closely associated with Google. If this is an upcoming feature of Apple maps, it will definitely be called something different.

Wow some false hope there. Genuinely hope Apple was preparing something like this.

And why the heck would Apple leak a yet-to-be released feature on their official website?

It will be a long time before you see Apple replicate Street View.

Why do I get the feeling that Apple is thinking that Flyover is a "superior" version of street view and they're likely to go with it?

Highly doubt Apple will implement Street View again, but hey, hope they can prove me wrong.

Could you do the whole "drop a purple pin" before in iOS?

And "street view" is not a trademarked term...."Google Street View" is.

...and for the 100th time, C3 was already working on their version of street view more than a year ago as posted on this site. It is coming.

Perhaps they could partner with somebody (not Google) already doing it? Like Bing.

I don't really mind; Street View is not the biggest problem with maps. Maps are the biggest problem with maps.

Yes, you've always been able to do it I think?

I don't see anything wrong with the image, but remember when the iPad came out and it looked like you could watch the Flash video on WSJ? There have been more examples, too. I really don't think that the people putting up the web content know the secret roadmap for Apple products and features.

That's not relevant. If Apple made the same feature and called it "Street View", they would get their arse handed to them in court. It doesn't need to be an exact match as long as the similarity would cause confusion.
