Use messages to quickly share your current location

We all have the panic “Where are you?!?” SMS at some point. Sometimes the question is easy to answer, but sometimes the answer is, “Well, right here wherever that is.” That is unsatisfactory, of course, but you can do better with messages on your iPhone. At the top of the conversation, tap the person’s name, tap the About button, and then tap Send My Current Location on the screen that appears. Messages instantly sends a small miniature map showing where you are, and when the recipient taps it, they can see a larger map, get directions, or open it in Maps. It’s a brilliant little feature!
