Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1603) Compass / Geolocation issue on iOS 6 (iPhone)
Date Wed, 10 Oct 2012 06:23:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-1603?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13473022#comment-13473022

Martin Ambrus commented on CB-1603:
-----------------------------------

I'm sorry, I just realized that the version of Cordova I'm using is 2.1 not 2.0 ... at least
from what I understand. It's a little confusing for me, since the last released version of
Cordova is 2.0 but the latest PhoneGap version (from www.phonegap.com - where I got my source
from) is 2.1

So does this mean that Adobe released PhoneGap 2.1 with unreleased Cordova 2.1 source? I can
try with PhoneGap version 2.0 and see if the problem is there as well...

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: iOS
>    Affects Versions: 2.1.0
>         Environment: iPhone 5, iOS 6
>            Reporter: Martin Ambrus

> Applications targeted for iPhone (iOS 4.2+) using Cordova 2.1 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.
