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

Michal Mocny commented on CB-1603:
----------------------------------

Martin,
It would be great if you could file an issue with them.

However, I am sure that most jquery mobile devs are not set up for cordova and they will ask
for a repro that does not include it.  If you can find a way to reproduce inside of a normal
mobile web app, or inside a simple webview app, I am sure that that will help.

Please post the issue here once you file it with them, so that we can track it too.

Much appreciated!  (and if you don't get around to doing this, or you cannot reproduce outside
of a cordova app, let me know)

> 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.
