apple maps icon ios 13In the latest version of Apple Maps that comes with iOS 13, Apple has added a Favorites feature that lets you search for specific places and then add them to a list. Favorites are meant for places that you visit frequently, and Home and Work are already added by default.

Any place you frequent can be added to the Favorites list, such as a favorite restaurant or coffee shop, or a friend or family member's house. Tapping on one of your Favorites brings up directions to that spot right away. Think of it as a speed dial option for Maps.

You can add a location to your Favorites any time you drop a pin on the map. Simply tap the place on the map that you want to favorite, then bring the location details up on the screen by swiping up from the drag handle with your finger. You'll see an option further down to Add to Favorites. Tap the starred icon beside it, and the location will be added to your favorite places list.
