Recently when I'm playing Pokemon Go I get a message saying I don't have a GPS signal. Some people told me it could happen because the battery is pushing on the GPS component in the iPhone 6 model.

Is this a known problem? Do I need to replace the battery?

    Does this happen in one location or does it happen everywhere? Can other apps that use the GPS, like Maps, function properly? Are you using your iPhone 6 in a city or rural environment? Are you in a building or outside?

Make sure you have wi-fi switched on if you don't already. It doesn't need to be connected to an access point.

For some reason I get the GPS error even with a good GPS fix if I have my wi-fi switched off.

  • thank you i didn't thought about it actually!
