Hi guys, I’m wondering if there’s been any progress on How to remove app request for user's camera and location as I’ve encountered the same issue.
I feel like there’s only two options right now:
Every time pushing a new build to iOS, wait for rejection before asking them to reconsider, saying you never use camera or location.
Make up some excuse for “using” the permission when you don’t use it. “The camera is required to… what?” “Location is used (for what?) but never leaves your phone”? How can anyone trust that?
It seems like if someone wanted to introduce these modules through OTA it would be better for them to submit a full new build, just as if they had to change a setting in app.json. I’m sure there are many apps that don’t use the camera OR location and have no plans to ever use them. This would also make the behaviour consistent with setting permissions for Android in app.json.
