Norwich residents have spotted the Apple Maps van around the city recently.

Apple Maps is the default map system of iOS and related apple products. Its designers say it makes finding and getting to destinations faster and easier than ever.

According to Apple's website: 'Maps predicts the places you're most likely to go and recommends the fastest way to get there based on traffic, time of day, your location and your schedule.'

One Twitter user who spotted a van in Norwich posted: 'Just drove past an Apple Maps van in central Norwich! I didn't know that Apple had their own version of street view?'

Another said: 'An Apple Maps camera car just went past me in the city centre as I was rushing for the bus.'

Apple have voiced ambitions to introduce self-driving cars to the roads at some point in the future. It's possible that the work on mapping Norwich is related to these plans.
