Little-known iPhone hack lets friends and family track your flight in real-time

A little-known iPhone hack that’s been making the rounds on TikTok allows family and friends to track their loved one’s flight in real-time — all you have to do is text them.

Travel content creator Jade or live_thedash revealed that simply sending the airline name and flight number via iMessage before boarding will automatically reveal the secret feature.

Once sent, the flight number will be underlined and when selected an option will appear, either ‘copy code’ or ‘flight preview’.

When your friend or family member selects Flight Preview, they can follow the progress of your trip with flight information such as departure time, estimated time of arrival, flight duration, and a flight map.

“This is the best iPhone travel hack you’ve never heard of,” she says in the video, which has been viewed more than 7.3 million times.

“All you need is your airline and flight number and send it in an iMessage… Anyone you send it to can track your flight in real-time. So wherever you go, try next time.”

7NEWS.com.au tried the hack and found that it worked for “Jetstar”, “Qantas” and “Virgin Australia” when followed by the flight number.
