Meanwhile, if you're using the beta versions, make sure you update your devices to the GM versions or the latest beta releases. One will also be able to check how many times each app has accessed the location information.

Facebook has published a blog post in an attempt to forewarn users as to what to expect when Apple's new iOS 13 location data alerts mean for users of its mobile app.

Facebook's most up-to-date blog article advises users how iOS 13 will alter place sharing on the program.

The iOS 13, iPadOS 13, macOS 10.15 Catalina, watchOS 6, and tvOS 13 operating systems promise a plethora of new features and enhancements that will be unveiled in the coming weeks.

North Korea fires unidentified projectiles toward East Sea
What Happened: North Korea test-fired two projectiles into the Sea of Japan early on September 10 local time, Yonhap reported. Choe warned that North Korean-U.S. "dealings may come to an end" if the Americans stick to their previous stance.

Additionally, Apple touts that with iOS 13, users can expect to see applications launch up to twice as fast as they do now with iOS 12, and that Face ID will be even quicker and authenticating a user's face to unlock the device and make purchases using Apple Pay. With Android 10, however, users would further get an option to limit the location access to a few individual apps. More probably than delving into Facebook's personal settings panel, runs the idea. "If you do choose to grant an app the ability to continually monitor your location in the background, we'll give you reports so you'll know what they're up to". The new controls could run afoul of a background location setting Facebook introduced earlier this year.

The live streaming company adds that public beta testers should use the Apple TV app as they would normally, encouraging exploration, watching and trying different features and settings.

Facebook recently revealed how the app collects the user location and the background location data on Android and iOS smartphone devices.
