Amiko – Tracking issue with an iPhone


Recording of your walks may stop unexpectedly because iPhones block apps running in the background (or when the smartphone is locked) in order to extend battery life.


  1. Go to Settings > Battery. Make sure the Power Saving Mode is turned off.
  2. Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services. Check that Location Services is turned on for Amiko.
  3. Go to Settings > General > Background App Refresh. Check that Background App Refresh is enabled for Amiko.
  4. Before you start recording your walk, close all other apps (by swiping them up).

By following these tips, Amiko should no longer have recording problems. If the problem persists (or if you have other problems), please feel free to contact me through the Suggestions & Feedback button in the app.
