Question: Find Friends not working with Watch LTE Cellular


When I leave my iPhone at home, Find Friends will always report me as being at home. Find iPhone knows where my LTE-connected Watch is. Yes, I am wearing it.


Find Friends should be reporting that I am where my Watch is. Apple knows where I am. Please let my friends know.

Apple Watch

If you have a LTE Apple Watch model, you should be able to make your apple watch your location tracking device for find my friends. You can only do this with an LTE model.


open find my friends on your iPhone and click on "me"

Then scroll down until you find "Share my location from" (I have an GPS only Apple Watch, that's why it is not showing on my iPhone) and change it to your apple watch

Yes, it would be nice, if it indeed worked this way. Only, it doesn't. Since you don't have an LTE watch you cannot know that it does not work as you imagine it would. This is how it actually is supposed to work:

The keyword here is "supposed". This has been BROKEN forever.
