On the iPhone, it comes up warning you there are years when the location is accessed in the background, but the iOS 13 and took it to the next level: the system will show certain apps to see your location in the tens or hundreds of times in a matter of days. Some developers are concerned that it may be able to reduce the usage of their apps, but the Apple advocates the use of.
- Apple explains that the iPhone 11 will always track the location of a user,
- You’re not crazy, iOS 13, and some minor changes
In a statement to the Wall Street Journal, Apple said that it builds the hardware, software, and applications that can protect users ‘ privacy: “we do not create a business model to meet a customer’s location, or their mobile device”.
From iOS, to 11, to be released in the fall of 2017, there is a warning on the screen when an app is using your location in the background: it’s a blue bar (on the iPhone 8 and above), or a blue background on the watch (on your iPhone X and later).
So, in iOS, to 13, the system has to alert you when an app accesses the rest of your site in the background, and it is suggested to change the permission from “always” to “when in use”. (Android-10 has a switch, which blocks the access to your location when the app is closed.)
The company is a specialized Location, Location, Location Sciences, it is estimated that the amount of location data that is collected by apps in the background has fallen by 70% since the release of iOS 13, because of the tens-of-millions of people have turned on the option for “when to use” on the iPhone.
The developers claim the feature on the iOS, 13
In August, seven of the developers were sent an e-mail to the CEO, Tim Cook, asking for the reconsideration of this appeal, because it hinders the adoption of their apps. This will include Life360, which lets you keep track of where you are in the members of a family, and the Tile, which is used in conjunction with a device for tracking items such as wallets and keys.
“I honestly believe that Apple will have to keep in mind the well-being of the user, and we are grateful that you have listened to when we raise these issues,” said Chris Hulls, founder of Life360, to the WSJ. “You only think that, at times, the actions that they bring about unintended consequences.”
The Apple has a competitor to Life360’s built in to iOS, 13, is the Search, which allows you to share your location with specific contacts. However, the system does not display the alert on the number of times that he comes to your location in the background. The other apps in the Apple, shall be subject to these notices, such as the keyboard Shortcuts.)
In addition to that, rumor has it that Apple Tags as they will be a contender for the Tile of: the device with a Bluetooth connection could also be attached to the objectives, such as key chains or bags.
Foursquare, for its part, believes that many of the warnings that apple’s 13 “is a step in the right direction”. The company said it is still too early to share metrics, dependable on how many users they have limited the access to the location.
