Apple rolled out iOS 13 on to iPhones last week bringing a host of critical privacy and security features to iPhones. If you have an iPhone that is eligible to be upgraded to iOS 13 (iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone SE) and you have taken time to update your phone, you must be no stranger to Bluetooth permission requests by now.

Apps - a lot of which seemingly don't require Bluetooth access -- on iOS 13 are asking permission to access Bluetooth on your iPhone. The list is endless and it's kind of annoying and frustating as everytime you open an app, it asks for permission to use your Bluetooth connection - something that may not have happened before.



The reason why iOS 13 is forcing these apps to seek permission to access your Bluetooth connection is because of stricter privacy and security settings that Apple has enforced with the implementation of the latest iteration of its mobile operating system. As The Verge explains, for years, Bluetooth has enabled tech companies and other services to track your location via Bluetooth beacons installed in stores, malls and in some cases even the popular streets. Whenever you pass through a place which has Bluetooth beacon installed, these apps send your location to these companies allowing them to spy on you. But iOS 13 changes that by allowing you to decide if you want this tracking - via Bluetooth - to take place or not.

The number of apps seeking to access your Bluetooth might confuse you, especially if the app asking for permission is a fitness tracker or a Bluetooth headphone. But here's a thing. Your Bluetooth-enabled devices - such as your smartwatch, headphones or a speaker - don't depend on this setting but on the Bluetooth system setting. This means that even if you deny permission to a particular app, your Bluetooth-enabled device would work just fine.

If it doesn't, you can always change the settings. Here's how you can change the Bluetooth privacy settings: Go to Settings > Privacy > Bluetooth > Toggle the button for the app you want to grant or deny permission to.
