    A little search in the app store would show that it's not.

    However, there is an alternative in the App Store. It's not free, but it is a stellar (pun intended) app. Best one in the App Store IMHO

    App Store - Star Walk - 5 Stars Astronomy Guide

    i use "Planets" its simple and free.. has some good features (like 3D viewing that uses your compass, like augmented but no camera)

    that Star Walk looks really nice though!

    Star Walk is really nice and well worth the money. It has more features than Sky Maps but is slower at giving you the 3d view of the sky. Planets is a great free option and works quicker than Star Walk. It's a shame that Sky Maps isn't available for iOS and I'm not sure whether that is a Google or Apple decision.

    I wish we had Sky Maps! I only used it once when I was on Android, but now that I'm taking an astronomy class, I would use it all the time!

    I'll definitely give Planets a try though!
