Apple combines the Find My iPhone and Find My Friends features. Run the device to track personal belongings
Apple is reportedly planning to combine “Find My Friends” and “Find My iPhone” to create a new app. The unified application supports the upcoming hardware product, the Physical Tracking Tag, which is currently operated by Cupertino in California. Consumers can label this tag with any object, including non-Apple devices, to determine their location. Apple’s unique application code-named “GreenTorch” is currently being tested by the company’s engineers. It should come on the iOS and MacOS platform.
9to5Mac writes citing people who are familiar with the development. Apple’s upcoming one-of-a-kind application will have the same features found in existing My Friends and search my iPhone apps. As reported, it will also improve the ability to find user devices.
“Named” Find a network “” This feature also allows devices to be monitored when they are not connected to Wi-Fi or the cellular network, “the publication said.
With other features, the app allows the user to share their location with friends and family. In addition, users can send location sharing to other users. “When a friend shares their location with a user, they can also create notifications when that friend reaches or leaves a specific location,” 9to5Mac added.
In addition, the merged application can find all the devices of the user and his family. Users can also put devices into “lost mode”. Apple also has the ability to track not only Apple devices, but also other objects in this application using the company’s current hardware product.
The code name B389 states that the device is similar to Tile’s tracking tags. This device is paired with a person’s iCloud account because of the proximity of the iPhone or AirPods device. Users are notified when the tag is too far away from the paired device. In addition, users can save their contact information on the label, which can be read by Apple devices when the tag is put into “Lost Mode”. In addition, the location of the tag can be shared with friends and family.
It is not known when this new device will be available to consumers, but 9to5Mac speculates that we might see it in September along with the new iPhone models.
