Locate your friends
Learn the benefits of the Find My Friends app
Using a range of technology including 4G radio antennas and GPS, your iPhone nearly always knows where you are. With the Find My Friends app, you can share your location with friends who are using an iOS device or signed in to iCloud.com on a Mac or a PC. You can find out which restaurant or pub your friends have decided on, say, or see how far from home your partner is so you know when to start cooking. Where privacy is concerned, you can control who sees your location and when. Find My Friends is preinstalled with iOS 9 and higher; if you’ve uninstalled it, you can reacquire it from the App Store. The first time you open it you’ll be asked to sign in, so it can work over iCloud. When it asks whether it can use your location, tap OK. It uses map data from TomTom and others.
