Find friends and share your location with Find My

In iOS 13 or later, you can use the Find My app to share your location with friends and family members.



The Find My app combines Find My iPhone and Find My Friends into a single app on iOS 13 or later, iPadOS, and macOS Catalina. If you need help finding it, use Search on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch or use Spotlight on your Mac. You can also share locations on iCloud.com

If you don't have iOS 13 or later, iPadOS, or watchOS 6, set up and use Find My Friends and see how to share your location with your family.

Share your location

When Share My Location is turned on, you can share your location with friends, family, and contacts from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with Find My. You can also share your location in the Find People app on watchOS 6 or later with Apple Watch models that have GPS and cellular and are paired with your iPhone.

If you already set up Family Sharing and use Location Sharing, your family members automatically appear in Find My.

You can also share your location in Messages.
