How to use third-party apps (like Uber) in Maps for iOS 10

With just a few taps you can call an Uber or reserve a tablet without ever leaving the Maps app.

The next time you search for a restaurant or directions in the Maps app on iOS 10, you may notice an extra button or two to make a reservation or request a ride.

The new buttons are part of a long list of new features in iOS 10. Just as developers can integrate with Siri, Maps is yet another area where company's like OpenTable or Lyft can stay front and center.

And just as third-party Siri apps require you to enable each app, so do third-party Maps apps.

It's a quick process. Open the Settings app on your iOS device then tap on Maps. Scroll to the bottom of the page, where you'll find the Extensions section.

Toggle the switch for each app you want to use within Maps, and you're done.

If Maps shows you, for example, the OpenTable button before it's turned on in Settings, tapping on the button will prompt you to enable it directly in Maps.

Currently, I know of Yelp, Uber, Lyft and OpenTable as apps that work with Apple Maps in iOS 10.
