If the GPS problem persists, try resetting Location &, Privacy settings on your iPhone. Go to Settings » General » Reset. Select Reset Location &, Privacy. You'll be asked to enter a passcode (if applicable), tap on Reset Settings to confirm your action.

Many iPhone users face issues with their GPS while traveling, which can cause problems with location accuracy. If you’re one of them, don’t worry. In this article, we’ll show you some solutions to fix this problem and get your GPS working again.

First and foremost, network issues can affect your GPS. If your network isn’t working correctly, your GPS won’t work properly either. To check your network, open your browser and visit a new website. If your internet is working, you can move on to the next step. However, if you’re having network issues, go to the network settings on your iPhone 12. This will help you get your GPS back on track.

The second step is to check different settings related to your GPS location. Start by opening your settings and tapping on “Privacy.” Then, tap on “Location Services” and check if the location service is restricted. If it is, go back to “Settings” and tap on “Screen Time.” From there, tap on “Content & Privacy Restrictions” and tap on “Location Services.” Make sure you’ve allowed changes; otherwise, your GPS won’t work, and you’ll have location problems.

Next, go back to “Privacy” and tap on “Location Services” once again. Scroll down and toggle on “Show Map Location Alerts.” Doing this will give you the correct location of your iPhone 12. Check if your GPS is working correctly.

If you’re still having problems, there’s one more thing you can check. Open your settings and scroll down to find your map apps. Tap on “Maps” and check the location access point. If it’s marked as “Never,” change it to “Ask Next Time” or “While Using This App.” Doing this will give your GPS access to your location and fix the issue.

These steps apply to every iPhone, including iPhone 12 Pro Max, 11, and XR. If you’ve tried these steps and still have issues, feel free to ask any questions. By following these tips, you can reset your iPhone GPS and get your location accuracy back on track.
