iOS 13 Tips And Tricks: How To Add Favorites And Collections In Map

With Apple’s newly released update iOS 13, more advanced features and improvements are made available to apps. Apple Map in iOS 13 is even better with availability of more roads, buildings, beaches, and 3D structures but the more notable improvements are its new features making it more detailed with its turn-by-turn directions, up-to-date and more accurate than before. The difference between this feature in terms of their iOS versions is that with iOS 12, in order to keep track a location to get back and check out in a later time, you can simply pin it and then it can be added to Favorites. However though, with the new update iOS 13, you are able to add your Favorites places on the Favorite list and have the option to move everything else unto Collections for easier access.
