In principle, we could modify the map data of backup data to add an option to set virtual location. At present, this solution only applies from iOS 7 to iOS 10, we would develop the new way for iOS 11 in the future. The virtual location is fixed without changing with space and the simulative location applies any App. If you want to restore, you could reboot your device. 


Warm Reminder

1. Please back up one more time to get the backup file in case you can not back up the edited file which may cause the loss of your importance data in your iDevice. 


2. Before you amend the specific file, please back up the file you need to amend.


3. If you can not restore the backup file on 3uTools after you amend the file, that means you did not follow the tutorial to amend the file. Please check the file carefully to see the content is correct or not. If you still can not back up the file after you correct it, then you can not set a virtual location on your iDevice. 


Operations

1. Download the latest 3uTools and properly connect your iPhone to your PC. Click iDevice→Backup/Restore→Backup iDevice.
