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

------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry for the confusion, my target iOS is set to 4.3 (which is the lowest XCode 4.5 supports),
not 4.2 as I previously written.

The target iOS is therefore always set to 4.3. This setting does not change.

Then I compile and run the application on an iPhone 4S with iOS 5.1 installed, where everything
works as expected.

However, once I run the same application, with the same target (set to 4.3) on an iPhone 5
with iOS 6 installed, I see the compass arrow on the top right-hand side of the status bar.
This arrow does not appear on iOS 5.1 and seems to be only an issue with iOS 6, as I have
now tried to upgrade my iPhone 4S to iOS6 and now it has the same issue as well.

Also, EnableLocationServices is already set to NO. I did not try to turn it on, as the application
does not require any location-wise functionality.

>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: iOS
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
>         Environment: iPhone 5, iOS 6
>            Reporter: Martin Ambrus
>            Assignee: Shazron Abdullah
>            Priority: Critical
>              Labels: geolocation, location
>
> 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.
