iOS 11 Support

The latest iOS SDK brings support for enhanced Location Permission model introduced in iOS 11. You can now use MOCA location services with both Always and When in Use authorization modes. Moreover, The MOCA SDK brings the following advantages:

  • The “AUTO MODE” functionality to request location permissions:
    • Step 1: The SDK asks the user for location permission as follows: “when in use” and “Cancel”.
    • Step 2: After the first step, the SDK asks for the location permission as follows: “When in use” and “Always”. In this way, the total number of people who accept to be geolocated increases.
    Now with the “When in use” permission it is possible to locate beacons in the foreground. Improved location analytics with the “When in use” permission.
