Niantic, the developer of Pokemon Go game released an update for iPhone as well as Android users that bring in the new Buddy feature while at the same time preventing jailbroken or rooted devices from being able to play the game. By bringing this update, Niantic was thinking that most of the cheat apps for Pokémon Go require a rooted device and by blocking rooted users, the developer thought it would cut off cheaters.
However, the sad news for the developer, which may still be good news for the cheaters, is that the best cheat for Pokémon Go available on iPhone seems to be still working following the 1.7.0 update. The interesting thing about this is that the cheaters don’t even have to jailbreak their iPhone to use it.
One struggle for players when playing Pokemon Go game is that they have to do a lot of walking so that they catch them all. An augmented reality gameplay is provided by your actual location and camera of the phone. What this means is that a player has to dedicate a lot of time to the game, and this is something that seems annoying to players considering that tracking Pokémon does not appear to be as easy as it is intended.
Smart players have therefore devised ways to cheat and one popular cheat entails spoofing their location in order not for them to bike, walk or drive there.
It is an amazing hack that allows you to face the location you are in while also helping you to decide the Pokémon to hunt. So, you actually do it from school, work, or other location without even needing to move.
All you need to do for the cheat to work is install a fake app right on your iPhone without having to jailbreak the device.
