Adjust Layers on Google Earth on iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, Robert, Eng
Hi, welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to teach you how to adjust layers using the Google Earth application on the iPhone 6.
To begin, press the lock button on the right-hand side of the phone.
Alternatively, we can unlock our phone by pressing the round button at the bottom of the screen.
Swipe to the right to enter your passcode. As an alternative to entering your passcode, put your finger on the home button to use the fingerprint scanner.
Once at the home screen, find the Google Earth icon which is dark blue with a striped blue and white circle in the center and tap on it once to open the application.
Tap on the three horizontal lines icon in the top-left corner to open a new menu.
Tap on an option under the "Layers" section to enable or disable it. The first section of the menu is "Layers", and this is what we're editing today. In this example, all of the layers are enabled which means all of the options that have check marks will appear on the map. In this example, we will tap on "Roads" to disable it. The check mark will disappear to indicate that the option is disabled. If we want to enable it we will tap on it again, and it will bring back the check mark which means it has been enabled again and when we're on "Google Earth" and zoom in, the enabled features will appear.
Tap on the space beside the menu to go back.
Swipe in opposite directions to zoom in. In this example, we will zoom in to view London.
In this example, we can tap on one of the boxes to bring up photos and a Wikipedia article because they are the layers that have been selected.
Swipe in opposite directions to zoom in more, and different things will start to appear. We will see things like hotels, restaurants, hospitals, train stations etc. The more we zoom in, we will have different features specifically indicated on the map.
Tap on "Done" once we've viewed the information.
Tap on the horizontal lines icon in the top-left corner to continue editing layers.
Go back to the map by tapping beside the menu.
Zoom out by swiping together. Zoom all the way out to get back to the screen where we began.
