|Will Apple Look at Tracking People in real time?
This may be the case, as Apple received approval on a patent called "sharing location information among devices". This describes the process of letting you view a visual representation of the path taken by another person using a mobile device as a way of following that person's journey. Apple already offers a Find My Friends feature, but this only finds a specific spot or location of another person. The new patented invention allows for path tracking or following specific points along a route. This may be great for someone who goes on a regular hike or trip, as they may need to keep others aware of their whereabouts, but it can potentially take stalking to a whole new level with concerns over privacy and security.
