How to find your way home with Siri

In an area you aren't familiar with and just want your iPhone or iPad to get you home safely? Luckily, Siri can help you do just that with help from the built-in Maps app. All you have to do is ask!

How to get directions back home with Siri and Maps

  1. Press and hold the Home button to launch Siri.
  2. Say something like "Take me home." or "How do I get home from here?"
  3. Siri will pull information from your own contact card and give you directions home from wherever you are.
  4. When the Maps app launches, tap Start in the upper right hand corner to begin voice navigation.

Remember that in order for this to work, you'll need to have your home address saved in the Contacts app under your contact card. If you don't already, simply create a contact card for yourself and add your home address. Then go to Settings > General > Siri > My Info and navigate to the card you created.

Having a contact card for yourself is not only convenient when using Siri, but when you need to share your information with someone. No need to type out emails and phone numbers, just send them your contact card instead! You can also program work and other addresses you'd like as well, which Siri will be able to use.
