Previously, iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max users reported that iOS 16.1 beta 1 broke the GPS functionality of their smartphones. Although both Pro models feature dual frequency GPS for more accuracy, a bug prevented users from getting a GPS lock in navigation apps like Google Maps and Apple Maps.
The GPS issue was experienced only on iPhone 14 Pro models running on iOS 16.1 beta 1. Now, updating to iOS 16.1 beta 2 resolves the problem.
