If you're meeting up with someone in a large area like a park or can't talk on the phone to give directions, sharing your location in a text message can really help! To do this:

  1. Open a new or previously opened text chat with the person you want to share your location with.
  2. Type the phrase "I'm at" and press the spacebar after the word "at".
  3. In the predictive text area of the keyboard, tap Current Location.


     
  4. The other person will be sent your location via Apple Maps.
  5. Notice that only the map will show up in the text chat. You'll need to press the blue arrow to send the text message you've typed.

Now you can share your location with a quick text phrase!
