HERE WeGo is a great tool for getting to new places, but at the end of the day you’ll no doubt want to know the way home again, and the latest version of HERE WeGo for iOS (2.0.8) integrates a new feature that makes it easier than ever before.

The latest HERE WeGo for iOS update includes an integrated ‘Home’ function within Apple’s Spotlight search. If you’ve got iOS 9 or newer on your Apple device, when you want to go home all you need to do is swipe down from the top of the screen and start typing “home”.

The new functionality means your home address will show up in the Spotlight search, and tapping it will show the different travel options and travel times – just pick the transport method that best suits your needs to get turn-by-turn directions.

If you’re not a fan of Spotlight, you’ll also be able to take advantage of your iPhone’s 3D Touch function, pressing and holding down the HERE WeGo icon on your iPhone’s homescreen. That’ll bring up a ‘Go home’ button – simply tap it to see the best way to get home.

And, if you’re already using HERE WeGo for navigation, you’ll get directions home with a single tap on the home button at the top-right corner of the screen.

It’s easy to enter details of your home address, too, if you haven’t already; just press that home button at the top-right corner for the first time, or open the HERE WeGo settings and tap the ‘Edit your home address’ button.
