Almost everyone can relate to a situation where they might have wanted to spoof their iPhone’s true GPS location. After all, doing so can get you around certain app restrictions and unlock capabilities that aren’t available in your region or provide an advantage in certain location-based games.
Fortunately, iOS developer SouthernGirlWhoCode is out with a new jailbreak tweak called Teleport that lets you spoof your iPhone’s GPS location with only a few taps, and it can trick most apps.
Teleport is highly flexible, and depending on how you will be using the tweak, it’s jam-packed with power user-friendly features that will make spoofing your location easy no matter what you might be doing.
For example, the tweak offers different ways to choose your location, such as entering specific GPS coordinates or using a joystick method in a mapping app to force your location to move in the direction that you move the joystick.
Teleport also keeps a running history of all the coordinates you enter so that you can use them again in the future, and even lets you tag certain ones as ‘favorites.’
Teleport can work with most GPS-based apps, but if you find any issues with the tweak and certain apps, or you don’t want to use the tweak with certain apps because of fear of being banned from those apps, you can make use of the selective app feature. With this, you can disable Teleport on demand for specific apps only, leaving it fully functional for your others.
While you can use a VPN to spoof your location in certain apps, those apps are gathering your location from your IP address and not your GPS coordinates, which a lot of map-based apps use instead. Teleport is designed to let you spoof your GPS coordinates, effectively making your iPhone think you’re somewhere you aren’t whether you’re connected to the internet or not and whether you have an assigned IP address or not.
Location spoofing by way of GPS became popular several years as a means of visiting different regions in Pokémon GO, And similar location-based adventure games. While this remains a possible use case for Teleport, we warn that actions like this have been known to cause disciplinary action, resulting in bans. That said, you use Teleport in these types of apps at your own risk. Other apps, such as Apple’s Maps app, aren’t going to ban you.
If you’re interested in trying Teleport out for yourself, then you can purchase it from the developer’s Gumroad page for $3.50. The tweak supports jailbroken devices running iOS 14, 15, and 15, including rootless jailbreaks such as Dopamine and palera1n.
