Apple’s products are exciting. But the closed iOS system makes it impossible to modify the GPS information of the iOS devices. The Apple store also prohibits to release of any apps that modify the location.
However, a hardware company has accomplished this task excellently. They created a small module that connects to iOS devices through a charging port. Thus, you can send customized address information to your iOS devices.

GFaker is the name of both company and product, and it is essentially a tiny hardware device that you plug your iPhone or iPad into, as though you were connecting to an Apple computer.
The principle of The GFaker is very simple. It doesn’t require jailbreaking. Because the GFaker module is disguised as an external GPS module. It uses an Apple-approved chipset and complies with Apple’s hardware standards. A program running on an iOS device reads GPS information from the GFaker module. It gives the user the opportunity to provide custom address information.
- Without Jailbreak: Based on GFaker‘s work principle. It uses a solution that conforms to Apple’s hardware standards. Make it available on standard iOS devices. But currently only supports iOS 14 and below.
- Wireless Spoofing: You don’t need the help of another computer, just plug in the GFaker module. You can change your location on iOS devices.
