Find my Friends Gets iOS 10 and Apple Watch Support [u]

Apple has updated Find my Friends for iOS to now support Apple Watch, for those using iOS 10. Version 6.0 of the app also includes “stability improvements and bug fixes.”

Apple Watch users will be able to see where friends are directly from the watchOS app, which details contact names, thumbnails, proximity and where they’re located.

Tapping a contact brings up the option to call them from Apple Watch or send an iMessage:

iOS 10 is set to launch this fall, and many expect it to launch alongside new ‘iPhone 7’ models, possibly at an event rumoured for September 7th.

Update: looks like this update was released in June for iOS 10 and Apple Watch, but the app received an update today.
