What does No Location Found Mean on iPhone?
Sometimes, while using the Find My Friends application, you receive a notification that says ‘No Location Found’ when you are finding the whereabouts of your family/friends. If you are also wondering, like many others, about this notification, the following are a few reasons for receiving it mentioned below:
If the device you are looking for or the device you are using to locate your family/friend’s location has an unstable internet connection, then “No Location Found” can appear on your iMessages.
If the device you are trying to locate has its own location ‘turned off’, this can be a reason for receiving a No Location Found notification.
If the device you are attempting to locate is on Airplane mode, it can also give you a No Location Found notification.
Signed Out from iCloud:
If the device is logged out from iCloud, people will be unable to find the device’s location
Stopped Sharing Location:
If the individual simply turns off their location-sharing with you, their location will be unable to get discovered by you.
App Unavailability in the Region:
If the device is in an area or region where Apple has not yet offered this app service, then this can be a reason for receiving a No Location Found notification.
