How to set arrival and leaving times in Apple Maps on iPhone

Apple Maps now lets you set arrival and leaving times, helping you better plan your journey. You can set the leaving time and see when you will reach your entered destination. Or, you can set the destination’s arrival time, and Apple Maps will tell you when you must leave to reach your destination on the set time. Pretty handy, right?

This helpful feature had long existed in Google Maps, and now Apple Maps boasting this is fantastic for iPhone users like me. Let us get straight in and see how to set departure and arrival times in Apple Maps.
