Use this key if your iOS app accesses location information only when running in the foreground. If your app needs location information when in the background, use NSLocationAlwaysAndWhenInUseUsageDescription instead. For more information, see Choosing the Location Services Authorization to Request.

If you need location information in a macOS app, use NSLocationUsageDescription instead.
