How to Turn On or Off Location Services on iPhone?

In this post, we see:

Let’s begin.

How to Turn On or Off Location Services for a Particular App

Open Settings. Tap “Privacy.” Hit “Location Services” at the top.

Location Services option

Find the app for which you want to turn on or off Location Services and tap it.

Now, you can see the following four options (note that not all the apps have these four options):

  1. Never – disables Location Services for the app.
  1. Ask Next Time – if you choose this option, you can see a pop-up while you’re on the app. It has three options:
  • Allow While Using App – if you chose this option, then it means you chose the “While Using the App” option, which I’ve talked about later.
  • Allow Once – allow access to Location Services for this time only. Remember that if you chose this option, then every time you open the app, you’ll see this pop-up again.
  • Don’t Allow – if you chose this option, then it means you chose the “Never” option, which I’ve talked about above.
  1. While Using the App – grant access to Location Services only when the app or any of its features is visible on the screen.
  1. Always – grant access to Location Services even when the app is in the background.

Choose the one as per your wish.
