Vacation Navigation with Favorite Addresses in Maps & Back Up Your iCloud Photos 

Vacation Navigation

July is a big month for traveling! Be sure you use your technology to make your trips easier!

For example, imagine you’re on vacation, staying at an Airbnb and collecting tourist points in the surrounding area throughout the day. Since you’ll be heading back to your Airbnb regularly but may not remember its address reliably, it’s best to make it a favorite in Maps before you even leave home.

That way, you can navigate to it easily without searching repeatedly or looking for it in your Recents list. Similarly, take a few minutes to add other addresses that you know you’ll need, such as the rental car dropoff spot.

  • In Maps on the iPhone, tap the ••• button ➊ next to an address.
  • Then add to Favorites ➋. T
  • When it’s time to navigate, swipe up on the search handle ➌
  • Tap the favorite ➍ to get directions.
