APPLE fans can unlock a clever travel hack with their iPhone.
A special feature for flights is built right into the iMessage app.
As you prepare for your summer vacation, your iPhone can come in handy.
Thanks to Apple, there’s a way to quickly share and access all your flight information.
The trick was shared by TikTok travel star @estherelsewhere, where it earned hundreds of likes.
“Open your iPhone Messages and either you or your friend will send your flight number,” Esther explained.
“This will automatically create a clickable link.
“Then you click flight preview and bam, you have your friend, family member or flight tracker right there.”
You can enter the airline and flight number or the abbreviated flight code.
However you use this iPhone trick, you get the same result – a special flight preview.
You can tell whether it worked by the fact that the text is automatically underlined after it has been sent.
Anyone in the iMessage chat can see all the information about the flight.
This includes departure and arrival times as well as the remaining flight time.
You can also see the destinations, any delays, and the terminal and gate.
The preview shows the baggage claim numbers at the end of the trip.
And everyone in the chat gets a real-time map to track the flight.
Unfortunately it is possible that some flights are not displayed in the preview.
But many of the major carriers are supported by this feature.
If you have a vacation planned, this isn’t the only airplane trick you need to know.
Another genius iPhone travel hack turns your travel bag into a free-flying accessory.
