How to use Location Spoof (iOS Only)

Introduction

You can use Location Spoof to change your iOS device's location to anywhere in the world. This can allow you to access geo-located events and releases, waitlists, games, location-based apps and services, and more.

Setup & Recommendations

  • To use Location Spoof, you need to have an iOS device with iOS 9 or newer. It is best not to use beta builds of iOS, as they are likely to have issues working.
  • If you are using a Windows Computer, you need to have iTunes installed. If you do not have iTunes installed, you can do so using the link here.
  • When you launch Location Spoof on Windows, it will request administrator rights to launch a console window to connect to your iOS devices and install the necessary drivers. Please leave this console window open while using Location Spoof.
  • Do not connect your iOS device to your computer until the console window has finished installing the necessary drivers. Otherwise, Location Spoof may not work.
  • The computer you are using to spoof your location must be a local device in front of you. It cannot be a server or a computer that you connect to remotely since you will need to plug your iOS device directly into the computer running Spoof.

Troubleshooting Location Spoof

  • (Windows) If you have Python 3.12 Installed and Location Spoof is still prompting you to install it, you may need to close out of the Toolbox and right-click to run it as an Administrator, then launch Location Spoof.
  • The most common error occurs when you have not yet trusted the computer you are connected to. The first thing you can do to resolve this is to open up iTunes or Finder and ensure that your device shows up there. This can help prompt the trust message to get your computer and device trusted.
  • If you are using iOS 16.1.1 on an iPhone 14 then you will need to enable Airplane Mode in order to successfully Spoof your iOS device. You will also want to re-enable Wifi and Bluetooth.

  • If you have tried all of the above steps, try to clear the trusted devices. You can do this while the iPhone is plugged into your computer by going to Settings on your iPhone, and there is a Developer Category. Inside of that, at the top, there is a Clear Trusted Computers. After you clear trusted computers, you will need to restart the device and connect your device to Location Spoof again.
