iOS Features – Blue Bar
What is Blue Bar?
Blue Bar (The Location Services Status Bar) is a native iOS feature that allows an app to access Continuous Locations Updates when the user has set the permissions to While In Use and the app is in the background.
The Blue Bar will be displayed at the top of the screen – either across the status bar or behind the clock (the event display changes between iPhone models). This notification lets the user know that the app is utilising the Location Services.
