How to share location on the iPhone

One of the most popular ways of expressing yourself or exchanging ideas is through communication. In this growing world of technology, we have been gifted with multiple ways of communication, some of which, include –

  1. Text Messaging (SMS or MMS)
  2. Social Media Messengers (Whatsapp, Messenger, etc)
  3. Emails

Out of the three, probably the most convenient option is that of the SMS. Apple has its own proprietary messaging client, which they call iMessage, and over the years, it has grown into a wholesome SMS/instant messaging platform, that rivals the likes of Facebook Messenger and even Whatsapp. Initially, iMessage was made to support only Apple to Apple communication, but eventually, Apple caved in and allowed iMessage to operate as a more standardized SMS app, with the only difference being the color codes. Apple to Apple conversations appears in blue color, while Apple to non-Apple conversations appears in green. Other than this, the rest of the features behave the same.

One of the most used features on iMessage is location sharing. This feature allows you to send a particular location to a contact of your choice. This is particularly useful when you are planning a meet-up with a friend or a group and they all need the location of the spot.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to share location on the iPhone.
