Re: Why ?

Then go into your Permission control panel and kill off location permission for every app that you feel doesn't need that information.

In my case, that's every app, period. Including Location Services and Carrier Services. Had it set that way for years now.

The apps will almost always work fine without the location data, it's just something additional they are getting from you for free. Because you let them.

So, stop letting them. It's your phone.
