The new maps in iOS 6 look sweet!

Much more Apple like than Google Maps. I used to think Google Maps was pretty. Now I think I was just too used to them.

2. Not yet. But apparently Street View is not often used by most people on their phones.

I use it once in a while. I'm far more likely to use it on my Mac myself.

Google will release their own app (with the bonus of ads, most likely). So Street View will be on the iPhone if you really need it.

3. I've always found street view helpful in this area

Because there are few to none, or well hidden addresses. Recognizing a building from street view is sometimes easier than hunting for the hidden address. But, as you say, google will still be available, so no great loss.
