Upcoming Version Of ‘Find My Friends’ Comes With A Geo-Fencing Feature

The updated version of ‘Find My Friends’, which will launch with iOS 6 this fall, comes with a geo-fencing feature — that is, you can designate an area around yourself, as small as a building or as large as a state. When you arrive or leave that area, your friends can be notified.

As with all notifications in Find My Friends, this can be set for a limited time only. Otherwise, there’s one major update to Find My Friends: it features the Maps app front and center on your Friends page, a design treatment never given to Google Maps (which Find My Friends used in its first incarnation).
