Do cell phones have GPS receivers?

Not the right word, since the GPS radios in smartphones do not transmit to the GPS satellites. “Receive” … YES. These GPS receivers (whether in cell phones or personal navigation devices) tune the receivers to the correct frequencies that are being used by the GPS satellites.

Do iphones have a GPS receiver?

Positioning. The iPhone includes a regular GPS receiver, just like your standalone GPS. The “assisted” part means the iPhone is able to get a quick lock based on other data sources, such as nearby cell phone towers or WiFi networks.
