Link Your Gmail Account to Google Maps on iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, Rushell, Eng
You're watching VisiHow, and today I'm going to show you how to log in to your Gmail account on the Google Maps application on the iPhone 6.
To begin, we will unlock the phone, which you can do by pressing the Home button, located at the bottom in the middle of your phone.
Alternatively, you can tap the lock button on the right side of the phone.
At the lock screen, swipe across from left to right to enter a pass-code if you have one.
However, if you have the fingerprint scan option enabled, you can press and hold your finger on the Home button to open up your Home screen.
I have all of my applications organized into folders. Google Maps is in my Travel folder because it is very useful when I am traveling. The icon itself is quite colorful with green, yellow, blue, red and white. This resembles the map you will see when you enter the application, so this is a nice miniature version of it. Tap the icon once to open Google Maps.
When you first open the application, it will take you to your current location or the last place you were searching.
Now, we want to tap on the icon with three horizontal lines at the top left corner of the screen.
A menu will appear from the left side of the screen. Tap on the blue section at the very top where it says Sign in.
My personal accounts are already set up on this phone. However, you can tap Add another account at the bottom to add a new account, which we will demonstrate.
At the next screen, you simply sign in to your Gmail account.
I will go back and tap on my account name to sign in. Since it knows me already, it doesn't require me to enter a password. However, you will probably have to enter your password at least the first time you sign into your account.
The map itself does not look any different after you have signed into your Gmail account.
However, when you want to add different places or save information, that will automatically be on your account. This may not look the same when you are on the computer or a different device.
