Use multi-stop routing in Apple Maps on iPhone
Multi-stop routing is an essential feature that comes in extremely handy when planning a long trip or when you need to run several errands in a day. Being able to add multiple stops to plan your trip can help you find the best route and save you a lot of time. Here’s how you can use it to plan your next outing:
1. Launch the Apple Maps app and tap the search field.
2. Search for a stop in your route (preferably the first stop) and tap on Directions.
3. You will see a new Add Stop button. Tap it to search and add a new stop.
4. If you add more than three stops, Apple Maps will collapse them and only show you your start and end point. Tap on the X Stops button to see all the stops.
Edit or delete stops in multi-stop routing
If you have added a wrong stop or you have to rearrange your schedule, you can easily edit and delete stops. Here is how to do it.
1. Use the grab handle on a stop to move it up or down. Re-arranging stops can help you figure out the best route for your trip.
2. To delete a stop, swipe on its name from right to left and tap the Delete button.
4 You can also simply swipe all the way on a stop to delete it.
Multi-stop routing is only available in Drive mode. You do not get the feature in cycling or other navigation modes.
