Access Street View on Google Maps with iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, Rushell, Eng
You're watching VisiHow, and today I'm going to show you how to access Street view on Google Maps on the iPhone 6.
To begin, we unlock our phone by pressing the power button on the right side of the phone.
Alternatively, you can press the Home button at the bottom center of the phone.
Swipe across the lock screen and enter your pass-code if you have one set up.
Otherwise, simply place your finger on the Home button to use the fingerprint scanner if you have that option enabled.
You should now be at the Home screen. In my case, I have all of my applications organized in folders. Google Maps is located in my Travel folder, so we will open that. The Google Maps icon is very colorful and resembles a map. Tap on the icon to open Google Maps.
It will either take you to your current location or the location you recently searched for.
To search for a new location, tap on the search bar at the top of the screen. Type in a location using the keyboard.
For this demonstration, I will search for Carnaby Street. Once found, you will see that it is highlighted by a red pinpoint on your map.
At the bottom, it says Carnaby St., Soho, London, along with the postal code.
To get more information, tap on the street name and drag it up from the bottom. This brings up an option to save the location, as well as some photos and a close-up map of the area.
To find Street View, simply tap on Street View just above the map on the left side.
Now, you are on Carnaby Street.
You can press the arrows on the screen to move around forward, back, and left or right.
You can also press on the screen and drag around to change your point of view.
Another thing about this option that is fun is when you press the icon with two arrows at the bottom right corner of your screen.
Now, instead of using your finger to pan around, you can tilt and move the phone around to do this. Press the same icon again to exit this mode if you find it uncomfortable to use.
To exit Street view, tap on the screen once. The street name will appear at the top left of the screen with a left-facing arrow. Tap that to return to the street information screen.
Tap on the arrow at the top left again, and you are back at the map view.
