Part 3. iPhone GPS Spoofing Problems & Fixes

iPhone GPS spoofing is not a 100% safe operation. Risks and exceptions might happen. Learn the common problems here and quick fixes.

3.1 Wrong location reported in navigation apps

Any GPS or navigation-based app might report a wrong or an old location on your device even after the location has been spoofed.

Quick Fixes:

Relaunch the app:Just double-tap the Home button on your iPhone to get the app switcher screen and close the app from running in the background. Restart it after spoofing the location to get the exact results.

Reset Location:Just go to the location services on your iPhone and disable the feature. Wait for a while and turn on the location services on the device to reset it.

Update the app:If the app has been outdated, then it can also cause the location sync issue. You can just go to its App Storage page and update the app to a stable version.

3.2 Account ban in Pokemon Go or Tinder

Since the use of a location spoofer is against the terms and services of many apps (like Pokemon Go), chances are that your account can get banned.

Quick Fixes:

Create secondary accounts:To avoid the ban on your primary account, consider creating another account and use it for location spoofing instead.

Reinstall the app:You can also just remove the app from your iPhone, go to the App Store, and install them again. This time, log-in to your new account to prevent any unwanted ban.

Take preventive measures:Try not to excessively use a location spoofing app and consider the cooldown duration in advance. Also, after getting a soft ban, don’t use a location spoofer on the same account.

3.3 Original location cannot be restored

Once the location spoofing has been done, some users can’t restore their original location on their device. This can be caused due to an issue with your iPhone or the app.

Quick Fixes:

Reset Airplane mode:You can just go to the Control Center or Settings of your iPhone to put your device on the Airplane Mode. Wait for a while and disable the Airplane mode.

Restart iPhone:You can also just long-press the Power button on the side and swipe the Power slider to turn off the device. After waiting for a few seconds, long-press the Power key to turn it on.

Reset network settings:If there is a network-related issue, then you can restore all the saved settings. Just go to its Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings and confirm your choice.

3.4 Apps fail to work after GPS spoofing

After changing the device’s location via a spoofing app, some apps might not seem to work properly. This is mostly caused due to an app-related problem that can easily be fixed.

Quick Fixes:

Relaunch the app:At first, stop the app from running by getting the App Switcher screen and swipe-up its page. Wait for a while and restart the app to check if it works.

Update the app:If you are running an old or unstable version of the app, then you can update it. Launch the App Store, search for the app, and simply update it.

Reinstall the app:You can just delete the app that is not running on your iPhone. Now, restart your device, go to the App Store, and install the app on your phone again
