  • But, if you are using a spoofing method to change location, it is crucial to clear locations, so your account does not get banned.

If you have been an Apple user now for a long time, you will know that it personalizes your experience according to your location.

I loved location recommendations by Apple such as maps, weather forecasts, or Apple store until I realized it restricts me from enjoying other areas' services.

What if I want to avail myself of services from another area? Or what about my location-based applications or games such as Pokemon Go?

If you are looking to permanently change your location on your iPhone with your Apple ID and payment settings, then the first part is for you. However, you can go for the second part if you search for iPhone location settings. But before we move, I want to let you know that please use a third-party tool or application to delete saved locations because of privacy concerns.
