Open the Maps app. Either drop a pin, search an address, or select an establishment. Then 3D Touch the pin or address. If the place you’ve selected is an establishment, such as a restaurant, you’ll see additional information about the location. You can also Share Location, Open Homepage, Call, or select Directions.

If you tap Directions, you’ll immediately get directions from your current location. This is super convenient for quickly jumping straight into directions.
