    Anyone notice location service arrow pops up every few hours for 1 or 2 seconds then disappeared. and in privacy location settings there is no purple arrow showing the exact application that was using it within past hours. I noticed in latest Sierra 10.12.4 that setting time zone location service arrow pops up once a while even its off, could it be the time zone location bug in 10.3?

    Yeah, there's usually a gray arrow next to the time zone location service even if you always have it off.

    NightShift mode relies on your time zone if you set it to sunset > sunrise. This applies to both iOS and MacOS.

    But i set it off, only happens in 10.3. I guess it's a new bug.

    I see the location services arrow almost randomly appear sometimes as I'm unlocking my phone and other times as I'm hanging up a call. Looking through the location services settings it doesn't show any apps with a purple arrow indicating recently using location services and the same applies to system services, although the set time zone location service, despite being disabled, has a gray arrow next to it as if it has been used sometime in the past day.

    So sometimes I see that something is going on in locations (arrow pops up) for couple of seconds, but then disappear. When I go to privacy>location there is nothing to see (zero arrows gray, purple). I only have FMI enabled but there isn't any location activity to show.

    I usually see this when I unlock the phone, but I sometimes see this when I'm using phone. Tried to reset privacy and location, but arrow is still there sometimes.

    Any clue?

    Do you guys have that bug/problem?

    Have you gone to System Services toward the bottom of Location Services? Likely, one of these is using your location. Many of them you can turn off without affecting your user experience, as you can see by my screenshot.

    As I said, many of them are turned off, well all of them except Find My iPhone, but there is nothing next to FMI, there isn't any arrow pointing that it was used.

    Sorry, but you said you went to privacy, then location, but never specified you had checked system services. I was just making sure.

    Anything by the Set Time Zone option (unless you have that enabled)?

    @C DM
    You are correct. But... How is this possible? I have never turned this on? Still it is pointing out that was used... Hmmm...

    Yup, that's what various people in this thread have been noticing since iOS 10.3.

    Seem to be noticing the location service arrow coming on during calls at times (often enough that I took notice of it). The only thing in settings that has an arrow showing up next to it is setting time zone (even though its disabled). Something's certainly off somewhere.

    @C DM did you went on 10.3.x with clean install or OTA? I updated via OTA, maybe to try clean install, but I don't think it will solve the popping out location arrow.

    I am so glad i came across this thread, as the same thing has been happening to me in ios 10.3.1 also!!

    Sometimes i'll go to unlock my phone and it'll stay appeared for 3 seconds or so then disappear, other times randomly! I have toggled OFF all of the location settings for each thing, and after 48 hours the grey icon appears only next to setting time zone, EVEN THOUGH IT ISNT ENABLED!! How bloody annoying. Has to be an iphone ios 10.3 bug!!
