How to secretly track someone’s location using their iPhone
So its a simple spying business. There are different ways if you got some consent or you made it secretly. Then its cool use you to use
Depending on if you want to do this secretly or not. The iPhone has a few ways to track your device. The Find My Friends app is a cool way to track relative’s devices and find out how close they are to your location. There is always the Find My iPhone app if you have lost your device or incidentally had it stolen.
And there are a few third party options as well that will not only track the location but keep up with what’s going on with the device such as record phone calls, Internet browsing and text messages.
Begin by opening the FindMyFriends on their iPhone, then tap on their contact picture at the bottom to enable “Share My Location” from the settings.
Also make sure that the location is being shared from “This Device” (under the “Share My Location From:” setting), as there may be other devices (like an iPad) that are attached to the same iCloud account.

On your iPhone, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to enable AirDrop from the Control Center. Make yourself discoverable to “Everyone”, although the “Contacts Only” option will suffice as long as their iPhone has your contact information saved to it.
Back on their iPhone, tap on “Add” (in Find My Friends) and hit your contact icon when it appears. Select “Share Indefinitely” to share their location to your iPhone for an unlimited amount of time.
