How to Send a Location Using iPhone MMS Feature

I know, I know. Why did Apple make it such a pain to send an MMS with a location? I don’t know, but since it took me a couple minutes of research, I thought I would help everyone else out. OK, here’s how:

Go to the Maps app on your iPhone. Sending MMS locations can NOT be done using the Messages app. (Stupid!)

Click the GPS button (blue, bottom left), to get your current location. If you are sending another location find the location you want to send, then drop a pin there.

Now, either click the blue dot, or the pin.

Last step: press the share button and then MMS.

There you have it. Thanks for reading.
