Slight clarification. Given that we can safely assume that Apple Maps 
are a Produced Work, ODbL actually says:

"if you Publicly Use a Produced Work, You must include a notice 
associated with the Produced Work reasonably calculated to make any 
Person that uses, views, accesses, interacts with, or is otherwise 
exposed to the Produced Work aware that Content was obtained from the 
Database, Derivative Database, or the Database as part of a Collective 
Database, and that it is available under this License"

Our current practice is that, to achieve "a notice... reasonably 
calculated to make any Person... aware", we request a link to 
www.openstreetmap.org/copyright . This does a better job of explaining 
the basics of the licence than a bald link to the licence text would do.
