You might experience that GPS icon is visible in the status bar although the location setting is off. This is known and will be corrected in a future software release.
However, please note that Software updates are released at different times depending on the operator, market, region or country. Therefore, we cannot give you an exact date for when a specific update will be available for your device. In addition, network operators and specific markets may choose not to use the updates for specific models.

@NNover Of course, me and the support team read all the discussions on the forum and stay up to date - but please understand that we are not able to participate in all ongoing discussions, even though we really want to. Our goal is to participate in all the threads, but I understand that it may at times feel frustrating that an official support reply may be a bit delayed - but I promise that nothing goes unnoticed!
I really appreciate the enthusiasm our users show in regards to our products by being active in discussions here, thank you!

it is unfair to mark the issue as 'solved' as the location icon is still on after the February update which I just received. It is NOT solved!

My January update was just fine, the phone WAS flawless, it worked like a dream.
After the February update, something .75, the helll broke loose.
Unlike others, I never have the GPS icon on top, regardless of my actions, sometimes the icons from the drop down menu don't work when touched and most annoyingly, the default keyboard is acting crazy, predicted words are suddenly not imputed, its a pain even to write this post. What the f?? Did you just hire a software engineer on drugs?? 😡 Where is my GPS icon???
Why is Swiftkey acting up suddenly?

Yup swift keyboard gone crazy, changed it on gboard - works like a glove.

Even if the location is set to on, the GPS icon only appears if some of the apps is actually using it on the moment (like when you open Google Maps app), regarding the Swiftkey unfortunately it seams to be a bug between the Xperia Support Forum page, everywhere else it seems to work ok.

i got this issues on 47.1.A.12.75. and the light brightness bug still not fix on 47.1.A.12.75 ,
sThis problem also exists in xz1 xz1c https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-XZ1-Compact/Adaptive-brightness/m-p/1299144#M2177
BUG light is not perfect repair, just delayed the light regulation, and the feeling is excessive first-order first-order beats, the transition effect is not so smooth ,but in 7.1.1 45.0.A.7.90 thats fine, can only say that this version has been amended, really hope it will be changed to 7.1.1 7.90 smooth
can we expect In one day it will be getting a perfect fix ?
and there are another problem which exist since orea 8.0 , 4k hdr photo bugs ,https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-XZ-Premium/A-4K-HDR-displaying-bug-in-47-1-A-5-51/m-p/1300614#...
Compared with 7.1.1, the picture in the album App does not look so clear and the photo time completely disrupted 。
hope u guys can notice these problem... cause We have been tortured by these problems for too long ，but we still love sony xperia
Thank you for your patience to read my question!!
