Xamarin iOS Opening Locaiton

You may also want to use maps in your Xamarin Forms applications. Maybe you want to get the location information of the person here. For this you need to get permission from the phone that the application is installed. I showed you how to do this for Android. In this article I will talk about how to do this for iOS. If you have not made adjustments in this article, it is likely that you will get an error like the one below.

On iOS 8.0 and higher you must set either NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription or NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription in your Info.plist file to enable Authorization Requests for Location updates!”

We also need to make iOS adjustments for this. In fact, these settings are available in detail in Yiğit Özaksüt Xamarin Advanced Education Courses. I decided to write an article dedicated to the mistake you took. You can access the video here.

Then we came to the permission section. We are exporting permissions from info.plist file. While it is very easy to do this via Xamarin Studio or Xcode, we need to open it via xml editor by right clicking on the info.plist and clicking on open with with Visual Studio. After that, we need to add the codes below.Then we came to the permission section. We are exporting permissions from info.plist file.

We now have the necessary permissions. Our map is also available on the iOS platform. If you have questions about your mind, you can contact me by comment or mail.
