Apple Maps will soon mark where apps requested location data

With iOS 13, You Can Know Where The Apps Tracked You

Apple will roll out a new software update today to fix a Portrait mode bug on the iPhone 8 Plus. In iOS 13, when an app asks for location permission, you'll not only be told about it, but the resulting pop up will show you a full map of where the app has wanted to check in on you.

If "Always" was selected, it meant that apps could track their location continuously in the background, often when users were unaware. In addition to asking for confirmation as to whether background location tracking should be more restricted, iOS 13 will present an actual map view showing you where location data has been collected.

The screenshot below shows the locations used by the Tesla app and the App Store. You'll have an option to change the permission to "Only while using" or keep allowing the location access to the app.

The aim of the map data is to keep you aware of how and when the apps track your location and you can decide on which apps to let use your location.

Anthony Davis Trade Rumors: Here’s Framework Of Deal Pelicans Desire
Why: Apparently the Celtics are committed to pursuing Davis whether they get Kyrie Irving back or not. For example, the better the player, the softer the asks on the draft picks - and vice versa.

This new feature could mean that users can take photos and share them on Instagram at the same time as being live on Facebook, or using an augmented reality camera to distort their face at the same time as being on a Twitter Periscope live stream.

Apple also said that it will be cracking down on apps that try to bypass the built-in location privacy restrictions in iOS 13 by rolling their own Wi-Fi or Bluetooth location tracking features, which Apple's Craig Federighi said is an abuse of the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth services.

Are you looking forward to multi-cam support on your iPhone and iPad?
