Engineers at Apple are currently working on an app with the code name “GreenTorch” that would combine the company’s existing Find My iPhone and Find My Friends apps into a single offering, possibly to debut in iOS 13.
According to the 9to5Mac news, the new application will have the same features of existing applications as well as other capabilities such as being able to remotely delete a device. In addition, users will be able to monitor Apple devices by means of the so-called ‘Find Network’ even if they are not connected to Wi-Fi or cellular networks.
Another innovation of the application is that users can share their location with friends or family. In addition, users can also send a request to share with their friends, and when they share their location with friends, they will be able to create notifications about when they leave their place or where they are. In other words, the user will be able to share his / her position with the person he/she wishes at any time. In addition, the new app will be included in the Marzipan cross-platform, which allows Apple applications to work on iOS and Mac.
There is no information about when all of this will be released, but with the new iPhone models, it is also possible to introduce this application. So it is likely that the introduction of the new app that will replace the Find My Friend and Find My iPhone apps will take place in September.
