How to forge your location on iPhone
There is no way to change the iPhone location natively within iOS, so you will need the help of a third party application. Virtual private networks (VPNs) can partially change the location of your iPhone, but excessive battery drain and heavy data consumption are two major drawbacks of VPN apps. In addition, VPN does not forge iPhone location on dating sites / apps, ride hailing apps, geoposition-based games, and more.
The tools listed below provide a semi-permanent solution with less adverse health effects on the device. It also impersonates the location of the device at the system level with the click of a button.
Note: The tools shown below can also forge GPS locations on your iPad. Before proceeding, we recommend that you use Finder (for Mac) or iTunes (for Windows) to back up your iPhone.

Download the app setup file from the developer’s website and run the installation file as an administrator. The setup file is less than 1MB, but the installer wizard downloads the files needed for iTools to work properly. After installation, iTools will also install certain drivers (at least 100MB) on your device. Therefore, make sure your PC is connected to the internet before and after installing iTools.
Launch iTools and connect your iPhone to your computer with a USB cable. You may need to unlock your iPhone for the app to detect your device.
