Many of us have already tested the new and improved features coming to iOS 15 by trying out the developer beta that Apple released earlier this month. In case you didn’t know, the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system is bringing new attributes to FaceTime, Spotlight, Notifications, Weather, Safari, Find My, and Photos and there still a bunch of unknown features that are yet to be explored.
If you’re one of those on iOS 15 beta, you may also have notified that the location icon keeps showing up or is persistent in the Status Bar at the top. While the Location icon is supposed to appear whenever you accessed an app that required your whereabouts, it may also appear at other times when your device’s system services are accessing it.
If you wish to remove the Location icon from Status Bar for these system services, you can do so by following the steps in this post.
