Google (GOOG) on Thursday plans to announce the addition of its Street View feature to the Web version of its Maps service for the iPhone and iPad, AllThingsD’s Walter Mossberg reports. Street View displays 360-degree photographic views of select streets and business in various locations throughout the world. Despite the fact that Apple (AAPL) chose to remove the Google Maps application from the iPhone in iOS 6, it is still possible to access the popular service through the smartphone’s Web browser and users can of course create a shortcut of Google Maps on their homescreens. Mossberg also said that he believes Google is working on bringing a native iOS Maps app to the App Store, despite recent rumors.
UPDATE: Google Maps Street View is now live for the iPhone and iPad.
