When you turn off Location Services on your iPhone, you will see the following warning on the pop-up window when you need to confirm this:
- Location Services will be disabled for all apps, but your personalized Location Services settings for apps will be temporarily restored if you use Find My iPhone to enable Lost Mode.
Since the Find Mt iPhone feature relies on your device’s location to work, it’s necessary for some of those options to come back on if you use that utility from iCloud.
Note that turning off your location can affect a lot of things on your iPhone.
For example, you won’t be able to use maps or navigation apps, nor will you be able to use ride-sharing apps like Uber or Lyft.
Additionally, many other apps, such as apps for restaurants or retail stores may not function properly or offer all of their features if your location is turned off.
Privacy is a big concern for many people, and the location data that is generated by your iPhone may be something that you are worried about a large company like Apple having.
Luckily you don’t need to keep location enabled on your device, and you can choose to disable it if you don’t want or need the apps on your phone to have that data.
The short guide above about how to turn off location on iPhone 14 has provided you with the steps to find the setting on the device that can shut off the connection between your apps and your phone’s location information.
