City Guides: Curated List Of Places To Visit | iOS 17 Guide

If you have iOS 14 or higher, Maps includes city guides. These highlight expert advice on things to do in the world’s major cities from the likes of Lonely Planet, Zagat, and AllTrails.

Search for a participating city in the Maps app. That’s San Francisco, New York, London, and Los Angeles at launch, with more being added regularly. Any available guides will appear as part of that city’s information, immediately below the map.

Swipe to drag the information pane up and scroll through the thumbnails to see all the guides for that city. Tap the one that takes your interest.

Scroll down for a full rundown of the sights and hotspots listed within that particular guide. Tap on a specific location for more information, or tap the + icon to save that location to a new custom Guide.

All of the key areas mentioned in the guide will be noted on the map above, with the digits denoting the number of places listed for that area. Tap on these numbered pins for a rundown of all the contact details, or for directions.
