Google Maps always serves as the number one mapping service on iPhone and iPad despite the fact that Apple Maps has become a lot better in recent years with dozens of exciting features. One of the most impressive additions to iOS 10 is that Siri now can work with third-party apps including Google Maps. This makes navigating your world faster and easier.
In this step-by-step guide, we will walk you through the steps to use Siri with Google Maps on your iPhone. Before we begin, make sure that you are now running a modern version of iOS.
