Hi, welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to teach you how to save offline maps from 'Google Maps' with the iPhone 6.
To begin, unlock your phone by pressing the round button at the bottom of the screen.
Alternatively, press the 'Lock' button on the right-hand side of the phone.
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.
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.
Your home screen will be displaying the last place you've searched for, or your current location. The red pinpoint indicates the place you last searched for, and the circle compass icon will indicate that it is displaying your current location if it is highlighted blue.
If you want to search for a new place, tap on the white bar at the top of the screen and press the cross in the top right corner to begin typing a new location.
If it's already in your search history, tap it to go to more recent search history, and tap on the location you want.
The map will display the location, and you can swipe up from the bottom to get more info about the location.
Tap the three vertical dots in the top right corner. This will bring up a list of options.
Tap on 'Save offline map'. This will bring up the map screen.
Save the map by tapping 'SAVE' in the bottom right corner of the screen. You can zoom in or out, or rotate the map before saving to get exactly the map you need.
Name the map you have saved and tap Save. It is automatically named by its location, but you can erase the name and type one in yourself. Tap 'CANCEL' if you don't want to save the map, and tap 'SAVE' if you want to continue.
To return to the main screen, tap the arrow in the top left corner of the screen.
Now you know how to save an offline map in the 'Google Maps' application on the iPhone 6. If you have any questions or comments, enter them in the box below. Thank you for using VisiHow.
