On both my Pro and Air, apps no longer show up under Location Services under Privacy and Security.

Can't edit location permissions now or see what apps have location access.

Anyone else seeing this?
I seem to have the same problem on 3 different Macs. No apps are listed, and if a new app tries to request location services, it doesn’t show in System Settings so it’s impossible to enable.
Bug filed with Apple as FB12739439.

Same here. Really annoying. I wasted an hour on this before realizing it's just... broken

I filed a bugreport: FB12755442 (and referenced @chrfr 's FB12739439 as well)

This is experimental:
- disable location services
- run in Terminal
Code:
tccutil reset Liverpool
- reboot and re-enable Location services

Liverpool is part of CloudKit, not likely to solve this, and if it does fully reset the location db, then people on 13.5 will likely lose location access on 3rd party apps which already have it.

Did this work for you?
I don’t use Location Services, I can only confirm that the command works in Ventura.

I updated to macOS 13.5 on both a MacBook Air (M2, 2022) and a MacBook Pro (2017). Like others have reported, both have lost the list of apps in "Location Services" of System Settings. These are before and after screenshots. (This is a courtesy observation only, as typically do have "Location Services" disabled on these two machines.)

The referenced mentioned terminal command "tccutil reset Liverpool", reboot, etc did not resolve the issue.

For comparison, Apple simultaneously released macOS 12.6.8. I installed that on a MacBook Pro (early 2015). The list of apps remains available within "Location Services" of System Preferences.

Too bad Apple didn't properly explain how to reset Location on macOS https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/qa/qa1906/_index.html

Question for all crawled on by this bug. Are you still able to see the location toggles for the System Services through the Details button?

Picked up a new M2 Pro yesterday and can't enable location on chrome since it takes you to settings instead of the Yes/No prompt. Very annoying.

What’s the best way to download the full installer for the last version until this is fixed? Is there a link directly from Apple?
