Apple has decided to remove the "always allow" location of iOS 13 in pop-up format. Instead, if you want to give permission to a particular application, you will need to complete some steps in the settings. This decision is frustrating the developers.
Many of the apps we have on our smartphone need localization to work. By the way even Apple application like "Find My iPhone" needs constant localization to work.
Developers sent letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook
It is on the foundation of "Find My iPhone" that some developers wrote a letter to Apple. One application, for example, was an emergency service that immediately sends the location to some contacts if the need arises.
In the letter you can read "Like you, we are committed to ensuring that privacy is the top priority, but we are concerned that the current implementation creates confusion for users, which really weakens that goal (…).
The changes also have the added effect of removing critical geolocation functionality while not applying to Apple's own applications, some of which compete with the products we develop."
Apple's answer was clear and doesn't seem to change the situation
"We take responsibility for ensuring that applications are maintained to a high standard of privacy, security and content, because nothing is more important than maintaining the trust of our users.
Users trust Apple – and that trust is critical to how we operate a fair and competitive store for distributing apps to developers. Any changes we make to hardware, software, or system-level applications are at your service, your privacy, and providing them with the best products and ecosystem in the world.. "
What will it be like going forward
On iOS 13, if the "always allow" location button disappears, you will need to go to settings – privacy – location services and allow a certain app to constantly access the location on your smartphone. Extra steps that many users will not do.
