Warning: iOS 16.1 Beta Breaking GPS on iPhone 14 Pro Models

iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max owners should be aware that iOS 16.1 beta prevents GPS from working properly on the device for many users. Anyone relying on location tracking should avoid the beta for now.


Bugs are common with beta software, but this issue affects core iPhone functionality, prompting us to share this warning. iPhone 14 Pro users who have iOS 16.1 beta installed should downgrade to iOS 16.0.1 or wait until the newer iOS 16.1 beta fixes the issue to restore GPS functionality. The cause of the bug is not clear.

Like the Apple Watch Ultra, the iPhone 14 Pro models have dual-frequency GPS support. This means iPhone can receive signals from GPS satellites operating on the older L1 frequency and the higher power L5 frequency, which can travel better through obstacles such as buildings and trees. The combination of the two signals will lead to increased location accuracy in mapping applications and much more.

The standard iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus do not have dual-frequency GPS support.
