iPhone’s popular mapping applications – Google Maps and Apple Maps – let you find your way around easily, no matter where you are across the globe. And there is nothing more comfortable than telling your map to take you home with one tap – except the application has you registered at the wrong home address. Below is how to rectify that by changing your home address for the two apps on your iPhone:
How Can I Change My Home Address In Google Maps On My iPhone?
- Launch Google Maps on your iOS device.
- Click the 3 horizontal lines at the top left of the display (mostly referred to as hamburger menu.)
- In the menu, click “Your places.”
- If you feel the need to alter the address that is already saved as your home address, click the 3 dots to the right of your home address and click “Edit home” in the pop-up menu.
- Enter your home address and then select it in the search results.

If you are yet to set your home address at all, the 3 dots will not be visible. Rather, you will have to click “Set once and go” under Home and then type in your home address on the next screen.
