iPhone 5S iBeacon is Flawed

iBeacon is used in collaboration with your phone’s location services to notify apps when you are in a particular location. Once you close the app, iBeacon should automatically stop, but the problem is that it continues to work even after closing the app.

Solution: Switch off Location Services

Since iBeacon uses location services, the only way to stop this annoyance is to switch off location services completely.

  • Go to Settings
  • Tap on Privacy
  • Tap on Location Services and slide the toggle off
