Have you ever been in a situation where you need to let someone know precisely where you are, yet a simple address or verbal message doesn’t cut it?

Apple has made a simple tool available to all iPhone users that lets you share your location with other people. You can set how long this lasts too.

Here’s how to share your location on iPhone using the Find My app.
