How to add a stop in Apple Maps
If you’re headed out on an expedition with your iPhone rather than a single destination, you can save yourself some trouble by adding the extra stop(s) in Apple Maps before you hit the road. Here’s how.
Once you've picked a final destination in Apple Maps, just tap Add Stop in the Directions panel, enter an address, and repeat for each midpoint. You can drag-and-drop stops to reorder your route. When you're ready, tap on one of the Go buttons to get started.
How to add a stop to your Apple Maps journey
Believe it or not, multi-stop navigation was only introduced in September 2022 alongside iOS 16. Follow these steps:
- From the Apple Maps homescreen, enter a final destination in the Search Maps field, or else tap on a Favorite, Recent, or Siri suggestion.
- Tap on the navigation button, which is usually a car if that’s your preferred method of travel.
- When the Directions panel appears, tap Add Stop.
- Enter the address of a mid-trip destination.
- Repeat the Add Stop step as many times as necessary, up to a limit of 15.
- Back at the Directions panel, drag and drop the “handles” (triple-line icons) to the right to reorder each stop.
- As needed, use drop-down menus to change your means of transportation and add any route filters (Avoid Tolls and/or Avoid Highways, in the case of driving).
- To delete a stop, swipe left on it and tap Delete.
- When you’re ready to ride, tap one of the green Go buttons next to a suggested route.
