Maps on Apple Watch is probably one of those apps you only open when you really need it. Maybe you need directions or want to look up a recent spot. But you can explore Maps on Apple Watch just like you would on your iPhone or Mac.
Of course you can do things like see your spot on a map if you’re traveling and in an unfamiliar location. But you can also get the hours or phone number for a nearby business or check out one of the curated city guides introduced with iOS 14.

As you follow turn-by-turn driving directions in Apple Maps on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, you have the option to let others know your estimated time of arrival (ETA).

With the iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 software updates, you can grant apps your approximate rather than precise GPS location. Follow along with us to learn how to share approximate location with specific apps instead of exact GPS coordinates of your iPhone or iPad.
When iOS & iPadOS 14 are released this Fall, the software updates will introduce a bevy of useful new features to the iPhone and iPad platforms. Perhaps one of the most intriguing features that seemed to slip under the radar are the new privacy-centric indicator dots that appear the top of the display when an app or service begins accessing your handset’s camera, location, or microphone.
This particular feature was so highly sought after that even the Android community quickly developed a way to port this feature to their handsets. Unfortunately for those running iOS & iPadOS 13 or earlier, a similar solution wasn’t available – at least not until now, thanks to a new and free jailbreak tweak release dubbed Quorra by iOS developer Lightmann.
One of the most popular things you can do with a jailbroken iPhone or iPad is spoof your location. A number of jailbreak tweaks let you do this, but perhaps one of the most simplistic of those releases launched last Summer and was called Relocate by iOS developer Nepeta.
After being on an extended jailbreak tweak development hiatus, Nepeta is now back with the community and has launched an updated version of the aforementioned tweak dubbed Relocate Reborn with full support for iOS 13. As you might come to expect, Relocate Reborn is just as easy to use as the original Relocate tweak, but it comes with a number of additional features that you may find extraordinarily useful.
