What you need to know
- Some users are reporting that their iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro GPS isn't accurate.
- Some are seeing the issue in the Waze app, while others are using Strava.
- Strava in particular is blaming Apple.
If you're struggling with an iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro that whose GPS just won't work reliably, you aren't alone. In fact, over on Reddit you'll find a few people reporting problems using Waze, Strava, and more.
One Strava user has been working with the developer of the app to try and get to the bottom of things. And so far, they're blaming Apple.
Other users have chimed in to say that they've also been having problems with GPS-enabled apps, including the popular Waze mapping app.
But wait, theres more.
And on it goes. These reports appear to be sporadic although they are all related to the 2019 iPhones. Whether that means this is a software or hardware issue, it's difficult to tell. It's also possible that the issue isn't as big as it might appear – people with perfectly working iPhones don't post to Reddit to say so, after all.
