    Just saw this in the Privacy session

    All apps, including Uber and Waze (which, to my knowledge, are notable apps that currently only offer “Never” or “Always”), will need to plan for the event that a user only allows access to location data “While Using the App.”

    EDIT: I just saw that this has already been discovered in the Stickied thread. I was excited, I guess.

    This is great news.

    I've been frustrated that some apps didn't previously have the "While using the app" option available.

    Having it mandated going forward in iOS 11 is a brilliant move.

    Sorry Uber. I'm sure they find other ways of being smarmy.
