If you know how to create a route in iOS Maps with many stops, you’ll have a much easier time using your iPhone to get from one place to another. Adding stops along a route was possible in earlier versions of the iPhone’s built-in mapping software, but iOS 16 greatly improves upon this feature.
With the latest version of Apple’s iPhone software, you can use Maps to plot out many stops ahead of time. In addition, you may add up to 15 different stops to a single trip, which will come in handy for completing many errands in one drive or including detours and side quests into your next excursion.
Presently, Maps only supports multi-stop directions while driving. Adding numerous stops is currently unavailable in Maps for any mode of travel (walking, public transportation, cycling, or ridesharing). That said, it’s great to see an update that complements a feature currently available in Google Maps.
Here’s how To Create a Route in IOS 16 Maps that Includes Numerous Destinations
- To get driving instructions to a location, first, input the address into the Maps search field and then select the corresponding icon on the subsequent screen. (It’s the one way over there to the left, beneath the place name.)
2. The second screen you’ll see after selecting a destination in Maps is the Directions screen, which shows you how to get there from where you are now. You can add more stops to your route by tapping the Add Stop button that appears below.
3. Third, a search window will pop up. You can add a new stop by typing its name into the box.
4. If you click the “Add to Route” button, the map will automatically include that destination. After deciding on a starting point, you can either tap Go to begin your journey or Add Stop to continue planning your stops.
A multi-stop route will be plotted in the order in which you enter the stops; to rearrange the stops, tap and hold on the three horizontal bars next to the stop you want to move. It can be moved up or down the path as needed.
And that’s it for planning an itinerary in iOS 16 Maps that includes many stops. Those with an iPhone running iOS 16 and a Mac running macOS Ventura can take benefit from the seamless syncing between the two devices, which allows them to plan a multi-stop itinerary on their Mac and send the directions to their iPhone.
