    With iOS 6, Apple is finally going to bring out its native mapping app and judging by the screenshots we’ve been seeing so far Google Maps doesn’t stand a chance. It looks like Cupertino has been massively integrating 3D imaging technology thus ensuring that Google’s StreetView will be fully and successfully replaced.

    Apple’s incredible 3D maps display brings forth the “Flyoverâ€, a feature that shows users their route from the point of view of an airplane. Even if StreetView enables a view from the ground level, the Apple version is said to be more continuous, while allowing users to actually behold individual streets.

    More importantly, the Apple Map app allows users to look at buildings and streets without the annoying overlap of the intensive graphics of the aerial photograph over the 3D model. The transition between the two modes can easily be achieved thanks to a built-in button within the application. Now with Apple being ready to unleash its own map app upon the world.
