How to Get Walking Directions in Maps on the iPhone


Getting directions from Siri on your iPhone, or simply looking up directions, will eventually have you using the default Maps app included on the device. This app is really helpful if you are trying to locate an unfamiliar location, or if you needed to find directions. However, these directions are given as driving directions by default. This can be a problem if you are in an area where you will be walking, as the directions might be drastically different. Fortunately you can change the settings in the Maps application to give you walking directions instead.

The Google Chromecast is a device that can change the TV viewing experience of any iPhone owner.
