Always On GPS Icon in 47.1.A.12.34

After Updating my XZ1 to 47.1.A.12.34, I am seeing always on GPS in notification bar.

I even turned off the location but the icon won't go away.

This needs to be fixed.

Hi Everyone,

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.

Most likely that there's an app and/or service that it's using GPS, boot in >>> safe mode and report back

 

safe mode will disable all third party apps, that will help narrow down the issue.

Hello, 

 

I have the same problem on a XZ Premium after this update. Only thing that solves it is a reboot, but after some hours the problem appears again.

We all have this issue after the update and even turning off GPS doesn't remove the symbol, so it's just a problem with the symbol staying there, caused by the update...
