If you’re not particularly interested in getting lost in the city, you can always use the Maps apps and find your way home. Furthermore, these apps can also help you get to work faster, and you can even use them when you are in a completely different state or city.
Sometimes, all of us want to enter the auto-pilot mode, and these apps allow you to do that without worrying that you’ll get lost.
You can use the directions home feature by clicking on Google Maps or Apple maps. However, bear in mind that you first need to input your personal information into the system. So, you will need to add your home address to get directions. Moreover, if you want to know how to get to work faster, you will need that address as well.
How to Get Directions by Using the 3D Touch
- Unlock your iPhone and use the 3D touch to navigate to Google Maps or Apple Maps.
- You will see a selection list. Pick “Directions Home”
- Once the app opens, you can then choose “Start” and get further instructions.
You can use both of these apps; it’s all up to you. However, if you decide to use Google Maps, you will probably have to input the addresses separately – it all depends on your preferred iOS Contacts settings. Nevertheless, you can input the addresses within the Google Maps settings.
The app will show you how to get to your desired location by using vehicles and roads. But, if you have the option to use the public transport, you can change the setting to that.
Although you probably know your way around the city, this feature is still quite neat, especially if you have made some wrong turns on the way home.
Siri Can Also Help You
You can open Siri and ask her to show you how to get home or to work. If you specify the home or work address correctly, Siri will open the app and soon, you’ll be on your way to your desired location.
No 3D Touch Option
Don’t worry – you can still use these apps for directions, even if you don’t have the 3D Touch. But, you will have to use the built-in search options. Just find your “Work” or “Home” address and make it your desired location. The app will then show you how to get there.
