Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1603) Compass / Geolocation issue on iOS 6 (iPhone)

Brian Strohm commented on CB-1603:
----------------------------------

I am experiencing a similar issue with an app.  I have noticed that the icon will only display
if you have Compass Calibration turned on under Settings>Privacy>Location Services>System
Services.  If you have Location Services turned off on your phone, all of these settings are
disabled by default, if you have it turned on, they are all enabled by default.  My client
is really hung up about this and we can't seem to figure out why it's happening even though
the app isn't using any location services.  Note: We are alos using jQuery Mobile.

> Applications targeted for iPhone (iOS 4.3+) using Cordova 2.1 and developed in XCode
4.5 automatically turn on Compass / Geolocation. This is true only for devices that have iOS
6 installed. User is never asked if they want to reveal their location to the app, so it's
probably the Compass plugin kicking in.
> What we see is the compass arrow on the right-hand top side of iPhone screen (status
bar). When the application closes, arrow disappears.
> This is an issue for us, as it drains considerably more battery than version running
on iOS 5.1, where this problem does not exist.
> We have tried to remove all - Location, Compass and GeoLocation plugins from the Cordova.plist
to no avail.
