The GPS at the top of the DJI Go screen refers to the GPS receiver on the aircraft. For follow me to work your Display device needs a GPS receiver (It 'follows' you by knowing where the display device is). For an Apple device to have GPS receiver then it needs to be a cellular device, as cell receiver and GPS receiver are on same chip.

You could always work with 'Active Track'.

The wording is confusing.
When it's telling you low signal, it really means no signal.

It's nothing to do with cellular.
All that matters is: Does the device have GPS?

Apple confuse everyone by only fitting GPS to their cellular capable models but most Android devices have GPS regardless.
