A bug or a need for iPhone 11?

Through a publication featuring a demonstration video, Brian shows that even though all location services have been disabled, his iPhone 11 Pro still displays the arrow in the status bar indicating that GPS is being used.

Brian Krebs contacted Apple on November 13 but did not get the discount answer because the iPhone company explains:

We do not see real security implications. This is the intended behavior of the location services in the status bar when they are enabled. License appears for system services that do not have a switch in the settings.

In sum, Apple explains that, despite an ever finer granularity in settings, the user does not slow down and opportunities his hand. Some services that use golocation are not disabled. If this is not necessarily very surprising, it goes against the current marketing of Apple which takes a total control of our data.
