With iMessage, you can easily share your Location like this. Time can share real-time Location with contacts during the day or indefinitely.

Today’s technology can make things that weren’t possible before. Position tracking is undoubtedly on the list of shortcomings (at least for most people) when it comes to ensuring someone’s safety or using their Location as a signal.

In iOS, Find My iPhone is an app and service that permit us to share and track our Location. When the iPhone is stolen or lost, these services play a significant role. We get the Location of the iPhone and can find the device by tracking the Location. 

But there are lots of people who complain that iMessage has the issue of Location not being Available. So in this article, we will know how to solve this problem. 

Before proceeding to solve this problem, you need to know why the Location of this iPhone is not available.

  • You or your friend has put the wrong date on the device so that it may cause this possible 
  • The device is not connected with a solid internet connection 
  • If users have hide their Location, then you won’t find their Location 
  • It is also possible that this country is limited for tracking features, so location error is there

There are unexpected reasons that can cause this problem. So the way to solve the issue shows the traditional way about the situation where the place to find my friend is not available.

  • Make Sure to Enable Location Services

When your friend’s location is not available, another tip you can try is to make sure you have enabled the “Share my location” feature. So here the steps are:
