How do I get current location coordinate by using Google Map or Apple Map?

I've never understood why we couldn't get location coordinates from Apple Maps etc. Seems like such an obvious function.
However, you can use the default Compass app and it'll give you your current location at bottom of screen. See screenshot below for the format these appear in:
Otherwise you can also download dedicated GPS Location apps as well if you need different formats.
Just thought I should add that tapping on the coordinates in the Compass app will then open the location in Apple Maps.
Not sure you can in Maps and Googlemaps.
You Can do it in openmaps
In the app. Find your location then drop a pin onto it.
Tap the pin to get its pop up bar. And go to its info screen.
At the bottom you will see the coordinates. Press and hold on them to get the copy pop up. Copy.
