Apple tests UWB switch to keep the iPhone 11 from tracking your location

Apple tests UWB switch to keep the iPhone 11 from tracking your location 1

While Apple emphasized that the company isn’t collecting location data and that the UWB checks take place “entirely on the device,” it promised to roll out a dedicated toggle for the chip to assuage people’s fears. YouTube creator Brandon Butch has just spotted that feature in the latest iOS 13.3.1 beta.

The new toggle marked “Networking & Wireless” is found under System Services in Locations Services, which, in turn, is found in Privacy Settings. It looks like switching it off triggers a prompt that says “Turning off location for Networking & Wireless may affect Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Ultra Wideband performance.”

Apple’s devices use the UWB chip for highly precise location finding. One of its benefits is giving users the capability to quickly find the right person to AirDrop in a place full of iPhone users.
