    Incorrect location displayed on Wi-Fi only iPad Mini connected with Wi-Fi router

    I bought a Wi-Fi only iPad Mini few days ago. Yesterday, I connected it with home Wi-Fi router and accessed Wi-Fi service without any problem. But, wrong location was shown on the screen all the time. This issue cannot be found on my Wi-Fi+Cellular iPad connected to the same Wi-Fi network. What could be the reason for that?

    The Wi-Fi only iPad usually depend on the router to which it is connected. That router will be registered with a location database already. You can’t update the database with the actual location of the router. At certain times, the router will be recognized and found in database automatically. Hence, you need to wait until this to happen for getting correct location. The Wi-Fi+Cellular iPad finds out location with the help of GPS. Therefore, it does not exhibit incorrect location issue while connected with Wi-Fi network.
