Revamped Find My iPhone app may get Tile-like item tracker

Turn off Find My iPhone

The new app is combining both these apps into one, this means, you will be able to Find your lost iPhone and track down your real friends from one single app from your iOS device.

9to5Mac writes, citing people familiar with the development, Apple's upcoming unified app will have the same features as the existing Find my Friends and Find my iPhone apps. The app, which has the codename "GreenTorch" is reportedly being tested by engineers at Apple already, and will add enhanced device tracking capabilities, as well as support for tracking other items similar in concept to how Tile's devices work. The application is apparently created to be able to track all the devices in your network in one place, with the option to see the location of your friends and family in real time, as well. That includes mapping family and friends who've shared their locations, notifications when they leave or arrive at a destination, sharing your location with friends, etc. The tags locations will also be shareable with friends and family. Apple users will also be able to store their contact information, which will be accessible by any Apple device once it is put in the "lost mode".

Huobi criticizes Binance for delisting BSV 'out of personal preference'
Even though Bitcoin SV has been a controversial cryptocurrency since the very start, the controversy really ramped up this month. After a sharp drop that found support at $56, BSV stabilized and it has been trading roughly between $55 and $60 since.

An additional piece of hardware that will function with the new app is a physical location-tracking tag you can attach to an item to keep an eye on its location.

Bottom line: It's unclear if Apple plans to license technology from Tile to serve as the foundation for its hardware tracker. The small tag will reportedly be pared with a users iCloud account and provide push notifications when separated from its pared iPhone. Also, if you like our efforts, consider sharing this story with your friends, this will encourage us to bring more exciting updates for you. It will also reportedly pack an improved ability to find a user's devices. Otherwise, 9to5Mac speculates that the new app could be announced alongside Apple's 2019 iPhones in September.
