Share My Location Unavailable "Unable to Connect to Server" on iPhone X iOS 11


Many iphone X/8 and iPhone 7/6s /iPad users are facing issue with share my location feature in iPhone, specially after upgrade to iOS 11.4 and even with iOS 12 beta3. This is weird and annoying as you will be unable to see friends in Find Friends or any devices in Find iPhone (though others can see me). Other location services are working correctly. Select Share My Location from Location Services, a pop up says “Your Device Is Not Connected to the Internet” and when user tries to  toggle share my location on and off, I then get a message Share My Location Unavailable Unable to connect to server. Please try again later.

One iPhone users quoted it as
So I have an iPhoneX and anIpad mini and I share my location on both products. All of a sudden today I started getting this message when I tried to change my location to a device: "Share My Location Unavailable. Unable to connect to the server. Please try again later." Also can not log in to find my iPhone and check other peoples location on find my friends. HELP PLEASE

In such cases if is recommended to check the system status of all Apple server for the specific service. You can check them here Check Find My Friends on the System Status page for issues.
