By Dwight Spivey

There’s a handy feature in your iPhone’s Maps app. If you’ve entered a person’s address in Contacts, you have a shortcut for viewing that person’s location in the Maps application.

Just follow this easy steps:

  1. Open Contacts.You will see your contact’s listed on the screen.
  2. Tap the contact you want to view to display that contact’s information.You should see your contact’s details.
  3. Tap Edit, then tap Add Address and enter the address information.Double-check the information you’ve typed to ensure it is correct.
  4. Tap Done, then tap the address field. Maps opens and displays a map of the address.You’re all done!


This task works with more than your friends’ addresses. You can save information for your favorite restaurant or movie theater or any other location and use Contacts to jump to the associated website in the Safari browser or to the address in Maps.
