#1 Delete Your Bookmarks

You wouldn’t believe how many people have complained about not being able to use Apple Maps because it keeps saying “No Results Found”.

Luckily, most of them were able to solve the problem by deleting their bookmarks and adding them again.

I know this may sound like a tedious thing to do, but believe me, it works.

Follow these simple instructions to do it:

iPhone and iPad:

  1. Write down your bookmarks in a safe place, so you can add them again later. Then, open the search card and tap on “More” next to “Favorites”.
  2. Tap on the “i” icon next to your bookmarks. Then, scroll down and select “Remove Favorite”.
  3. Go back to the search card and tap on “More” next to “Recents”. Then, select “Clear”.

  1. Write down your addresses, so you can remember them later.
  2. Go to the sidebar below “Favorites” and control-click a location.
  3. Select “Remove from favorites”.

Once you’ve completed the steps above, add your favorite addresses again on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.

Then, please fully close Apple Maps and relaunch it.

#2 Disable iCloud

If Apple Maps keeps saying “No Results Found”, chances are there’s a problem with your iCloud that is interfering with how the app works.

To solve this issue, I recommend disabling iCloud for Apple Maps. Many people found that doing this helped.

Bear in mind that if you turn off iCloud, your information, such as favorite addresses, will no longer be backed up on your device.

Follow this quick guide to disable iCloud for Apple Maps:

iPhone and iPad:

  1. Open the Settings menu and tap on your name.
  2. Choose “iCloud” from the list.
  3. Scroll down and turn off the switch next to “Maps”.
Disable iCloud for Apple Maps


  1. Click on the apple icon at the top of your screen to open the menu. Then, choose “System Preferences”.
  2. Click on “Apple ID”. Please note that if you’re using macOS Mojave or earlier, you can skip this step.
  3. Select “iCloud” and uncheck the box next to “Maps”.

Once you’ve completed the steps above, try restarting your device and relaunching Apple Maps to see if the issue was solved.

#3 Reset Your Settings

If disabling your iCloud and deleting your bookmarks didn’t do the trick, it’s time for us to reset your Settings to their defaults.

By doing this, you may get rid of any corrupted data that was responsible for Apple Maps saying “No Results Found”.

Follow these simple steps to do it:

iPhone and iPad:

  1. Go to the Settings menu and tap on “General”.
  2. Tap on “Transfer or Reset iPhone (or iPad)”.
  3. Choose “Reset”.
  4. Tap on “Reset All Settings”.
Reset your iPhone and iPad Settings

#3 Refresh Your Location

Unfortunately, if Apple Maps encountered an issue while trying to determine your precise location, a “No Results Found” message will appear.

Luckily, the easiest way to solve this is by refreshing your location. To do it, you’ll just need to:

iPhone and iPad:

  1. Go to the Settings menu and tap on “Privacy”.
  2. Select “Location Services” from the list.
  3. Turn off “Location Services” and then back on.
  4. Scroll down and tap on “Maps”. Then, choose “While Using the App” from the list.
  5. Turn the switch next to “Precise Location” off and then back on.


  1. Click on the apple icon to open the menu and select “System Preferences” from the list.
  2. Click on “Security & Privacy” and go to the “Privacy” tab.
  3. If the lock at the bottom of your screen is closed, please click on it and enter your administrator password. This way, you’ll be able to make changes.
  4. Uncheck the “Enable Location Services” and “Maps” boxes, then check them again.

Once you’ve completed the steps above, please make sure your device has a clear view of the sky. Otherwise, GPS accuracy may fail, and you won’t be able to get rid of the issue.

If possible, stay away from mountains, bridges, and tall buildings.

Moreover, setting your date and time to “Automatic” will also improve GPS accuracy and may help you get rid of the “No Results Found” message.

To do it, you’ll need to:

iPhone and iPad:

  1. Go to Settings and tap on “General”.
  2. Choose “Date & Time”.
  3. Turn on the switch next to “Set Automatically”.
Check your iPhone's date and time


  1. Open the Apple menu and click on “System Preferences”.
  2. Click on “Date & Time”. If the lock at the bottom of your screen is closed, please click on it.
  3. Go to the time zone tab and check the box next to “Set time zone automatically using current location”.

#4 Update Your Device

If refreshing your location didn’t do the trick, chances are you missed an update.

Normally, this is something you shouldn’t worry about because if there’s an available update, your device may automatically install it.

But, this is not set in stone. Sometimes having a faulty network, strict privacy settings, or a low battery percentage can prevent this from happening.

Having outdated software could explain why Apple Maps keeps saying “No Results Found”.

But, don’t worry. You can manually install any available updates and get rid of the bugs that were causing the issue.

Follow this quick guide to do it:

iPhone and iPad:

  1. On the Settings menu, select “General”.
  2. Tap on “Software Update”. Your device will search for an available software update.
  3. If there’s any, please tap on the “Download and Install” button and enter your passcode.


  1. Click on the apple icon at the top of your screen and select “System Preferences” from the drop-down menu.
  2. Choose “Software Update”. Your Mac will automatically search for any available update.
  3. Click on “Update Now” or “Upgrade Now”.
  4. Enter your admin password to install the latest version.

Once you’ve updated your system, please open Apple Maps to see if the error message was solved.

#5 Use an Alternative

If Apple Maps keeps saying “No Results Found” after trying all the fixes above, I recommend searching for the directions in different ways.

You see, the platform allows you to enter the zip code, area, intersection, GPS coordinates, or landmark to get directions.

But, if that doesn’t work, and you’re in a hurry, try using a different device or downloading a different navigation app, such as Waze or Google Maps.

How to Contact Apple’s Support Team?

The fixes above should’ve helped you solve the problem, but if it persists, chances are there’s a major error that only Apple’s support team can fix.

Once you’re on the line with Apple’s support team, I recommend telling them that you’ve already deleted your bookmarks, disabled iCloud, and refreshed your location. Bear in mind that they may ask for more information.
