    On the home screen, find the 'Google Maps' application

    My home screen might be different because it is organized with different folders. In this case, the application is located in the "Travel" folder. The icon is colorful with a green triangle, a yellow line, a blue triangle, a red pinpoint and also a Google "G" icon in the top left, or like a smaller version of the map. Tap it once to open the application.

Difference between iPhone 6: Maps, Google Maps and Offline Maps?
