Apple expected to launch four 5G iPhones in 2020, JPMorgan says

A little arrowhead will show up whenever an app or system service is accessing location data.

That's why Apple also lets you block location services individually for each app from System Services. According to Brian Krebs, the iPhone 11 Pro keeps pinging its Global Positioning System module to gather location data and doesnt even hide it - the arrow in the notification bar appears shamelessly.

Other iPhone users have previously reported experiencing the same issue in iOS 13, but Krebs says he was unable to reproduce it on an iPhone 8. But the Apple engineer's answer seems to imply there are location services that Apple doesn't advertise-and that it doesn't give users control over.


According to the analysis, the problem persists on the new iPhone Pro or devices with iOS13 or both. Before that, the first four iPhone models launched in the summer.

"While investors are trying to identify the next big frontier for services, we believe hidden in plain sight and underappreciated by most is the advertising opportunity within Apple's fingertips, given the secular migration of advertising dollars to mobile platforms, the large installed base of close to (1 billion) iPhone users, and importantly, Apple's successful exploration of advertising to date", Chatterjee wrote in his November 15 research note. Even their most recent commercials also emphasise the importance of personal data and privacy choices.

"It is expected behaviour that the Location Services icon appears in the status bar when Location Services is enabled".


But if some system services aren't listed in the settings, a user won't be able to completely disable location-based system services - ever. In the past, Apple has been very vocal about its take on the privacy and security of its users.

To make the lower-end iPhones more affordable, Apple could potentially limit the mmWave antenna to higher-end models, though prior rumors have suggested Apple's aim with its 2020 iPhones is to match the technology in more affordable 5G Android smartphones, which do support mmWave. It automatically kept changing it back to "ask next time". One, Apple wants to smooth out the seasonality in its income.
