Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1603) Compass / Geolocation issue on iOS 6 (iPhone)
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 15:14:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-1603?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13472454#comment-13472454

Becky Gibson commented on CB-1603:
----------------------------------

Can you please clarify what device and iOS you are running on?  The environment in this issue
says iPhone5 and iOS 6. Does this mean that when you compile the app to include the iOS 4.2
target and run it on an iPhone5 running iOS 6 that you see different results than when you
compile with the target as 5.1 and test on the same device?  Or, does the problem only show
up when running on a device with the lower level OS?  thanks

Do you need location services? Can you set EnableLocationServices to NO in the plist(although
that does cause a problem in 2.1 that has been corrected for 2.2)?

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: iOS
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>         Environment: iPhone 5, iOS 6
>            Reporter: Martin Ambrus

> Applications targeted for iPhone (iOS 4.2+) using Cordova 2.0 and developed in XCode
4.5 automatically turn on Compass / Geolocation. 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.
