It’s Apple event time, and the team in Cupertino just announced a new addition to iOS 5 – Find My Friends.

Using the magic of GPS and WiFi triangulation, iOS 5 will now allow friends and family to keep tabs on each other, assuming all the relevant privacy and parental controls are set correctly.

Users can set quiet times, with Foursquare-like checkins telling your friends and loved ones just where you are.

More to come as the event unfolds, and with the iOS 5 release coming next week, we won’t have long to wait before we’re all keeping tabs on each other from the comfort of our iDevices.

    Guys, you can’t just track anybody you want. You have to set it up to allow who you choose to be able to follow you.

    This is actually great for parents, to be able to keep track of where your kids are. In the unfortunately event that your child goes missing, this should provide the police with much better info to investigate.
