The Indoor Remote Triggered Location Scanning application lets Apple locate an iPhone user inside a building, with the help of preset nodes or iBeacons that can detect the location of a device. To locate an iPhone user indoors, the system would assess the signal strength from 3 nearby permanent nodes and determine the approximate distance to each one, and thus establish the location of a device using triangulation.

Apple has been consistently focusing on enhancing its maps application and transforming it into a better competitor’s alternative. The company already offers multiple geofencing applications under location-based services, and is still expanding its features and capabilities in the geofencing market. The company has also developed a couple of new patent applications that are working on advanced geofencing capabilities for its operating systems. Through Apple’s customized location notifications, users can send and receive notifications from their friends as they move across predetermined zones. Instapaper is an iPhone/iPad app, whose main function is to enable users to save articles found on the web for reading offline later. With Instapaper’s geofencing capabilities, users can enable the application to automatically download the saved articles to the iPhone, whenever the user enters or leaves a location. Similarly, with the Find My Friends application, the "notify me" page features a customizable boundary or geofencing option that can be expanded or contracted around a located iOS device. Users can adjust the monitored area around a device by selecting the "change location" button, which resets the geofencing threshold to allow more accurate location-based notifications.
