Several users have been reporting that iPhone location services not working properly. Here we have lined up solution that you can consider to solve this issue.
I had this trouble yesterday. I wanted to try a new place to eat. I opened the Apple Maps app on my iPhone, typed in the address, and tapped “Directions” and “Go” to get directions. Then I realized that the location services on my iPhone weren’t working. This means that Maps couldn’t figure out where I was exactly. Apple Maps didn’t keep track of where I was as I moved. Also, the navigation wasn’t right. It didn’t show the right places. I thought that my phone’s location services were off. But it wasn’t, because when I opened the Google Maps app, the navigation worked fine.
Some users have also said they are having the same issue. Some people have also said that Apple Maps stopped working after they updated their iOS to the most recent version.
