How to Create and Edit a Guide in Apple Maps

Metaverse News

Guides in Apple Maps serve as virtual tour guides based on the location you have searched for. They recommend new places you can visit in the particular area, let you add them to your own Guide, and allow you to share them with your friends. You can even save your daily travel route and find out all the restaurants and shops that you will encounter on your way.

Let's take a look at the steps you need to take to create your own Guide in Apple Maps.
