iOS 17 brought a slew of changes and features to iPhones and one of the more talked about features is ‘check in’. This feature was designed to make it easier for us to track our near and dear ones, in case they are travelling alone. This is a great feature when you have youngsters in the family who have to travel outside for work or study, and this feature gives you their live location, making it easy to see if they have reached home on time. Even if you have a sibling or a loved one living in another part of the world, and they are currently out late, check-in will let you know if they are home safe and sound. Using this feature is fairly simple, but keep one thing in mind – this feature only works between iPhones that are running iOS 17.
Step 1. Open the iMessage app on your iPhone.
Step 2. Open the chat with the desired contact. It could be anyone, as long as they allow the conversation.
