Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1603) Compass / Geolocation issue on iOS 6 (iPhone)
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2012 08:15:04 GMT


Martin Ambrus commented on CB-1603:

Interesting news... I've just discovered that the compass icon is only shown when I include
jQuery Mobile 1.1.0 source code on the page! I can't see how, but it's true. Trying with newer
jQuery Mobile version, stay tuned...

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: iOS
>    Affects Versions: 2.1.0
>         Environment: iPhone 5, iOS 6

> 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.
