How to Check Extension Permissions in iPhone Maps

The Maps app on your iPhone not only makes it easy for you to locate things and get driving directions, it also integrates with some popular apps to provide you with additional functionality.

Some of the apps that can integrate with Maps include Uber and OpenTable, allowing you to perform certain actions more easily from within the Maps app. But in order for these apps to take advantage of this feature, they need to be enabled. Our tutorial below will show you where to see which Maps extensions are enabled or disabled so that you can customize those settings as needed.

Step 1: Open the Settings menu.
