Now, it should also very much work in other apps as well for spoofing locations, such as Snapchat, Facebook and more. And yes as mentioned earlier, it doesn’t ever, never require a jailbreak to work.

The technique itself is inside the iPhone and iPad devices. Stocked with excellent feature additions in the Settings app, Maps app and location services.

Step 1: To begin with, you will need to connect your iOS device to your PC or Mac with iTunes installed. If iTunes doesn’t automatically kick into life, then make sure you launch if before going to the next step.

Step 2: Head over to the details of the connected device in iTunes by just clicking the device icon. Locate the Manually Back Up and Restore section. Click the Back Up Now button. Make sure that Encrypt iPhone backup option in NOT checked or active.

Step 3: You will now need an additional software called iBackupBot. You can download it for Mac or PC from the official downloads page below:

icopybot.com/download.htm. And it’s a free-of-charge acquisition.

Step 4: Once you downloaded the software, install and launch it on your Mac or Windows-powered PC. The software will automatically detect the previous backup that you have created in iTunes. Load all relevant info associated with it. Using iBackupBot software, you are going to need to navigate to one of the two locations below. Here’s what we have listed for you to choose which one, as you need to access a specific file from there.

  1. System Files > HomeDomain > Library > Preferences.
  2. User App Files > com.apple.Maps > Library > Preferences

Once you are in there, locate and open the com.apple.Maps.plist file. As the name suggests, this is the property list associated with the Maps app.

Step 5: Inside it, you will see a certain file structure. Look for the block of data which starts with the <dict> tag and keyword. Insert that following two lines directly under it as part of that structure:

<key>__internal__PlaceCardLocationSimulation</key>
<true/>

Step 6: Once done, added this additional info, you can save the edited file and exit out of the iBackupBot software.

Step 7: You will now need to customize or tweak it on the iOS device itself. Launch Settings.app and navigate to iCloud > Find My iPhone/iPad/iPod and make sure that the feature is disabled. Obviously, you may need to enter your Passcode for that to be successful. Keep the device connected to the computer and head back into iTunes once that has been disabled.

Step 8: Select the Restore Backup option in iTunes and then make sure that you choose the backup which you have just edited using iBackupBot.

Step 9: After completion of restore process, launch the Maps app and choose any location that you desire. You will get an information bar at the bottom of the screen which you need to tap on. There’s still an option called Simulate Location. Tapping on that will essentially teleport you to the location that you selected.

Enjoy!
