If you want to check out the app extensions that are available in Apple's built-in Maps app but can't seem to figure out how to enable them, read on.
Maps extensions became available in iOS 10, just before the public launch of the new iPhone operating system. My colleagues swooned over all of the cool app extensions and what they could do.
I couldn't find them.
"Do you have OpenTable on your iPhone?" "Is Uber available in your area?" Yup and yup. Still no toggle switch in Settings. When I tried to enable an app that I knew was available as an app extension, I got nothin'.
Turns out, the problem was that I hadn't downloaded any app updates yet. Duh!
Maps extensions for apps only work on apps that have been updated to support the feature. So, if you don't see the toggle switch to enable an app extension in Maps, make sure it has been updated for iOS 10 to support the feature.
If you have automatic updates turned on, you probably won't have any problems. Those elusive toggle switches will already be there waiting for you.
