Geofencing remaining active is a known issue, mentioned several times in the iOS official feedback thread. Other threads which repeat information already available may go ignored on purpose. This issue is #138 on https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... _web#gid=0

GPS "While Using" iOS Location Services

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Mon Oct 05, 2015 6:23 am

If you have calendar integration turned on that may keep the gps icon on and is called "Location Reporting." In that mode it uses pretty much no extra power as the gps really isn't on.

iOS and Waze - GPS always on

Postby aleksicbre » Fri May 05, 2017 11:28 am

Hello, my Waze app on iPhone 6+ constantly holds GPS on. And there is no option for When in use, just Always and Never.
GPS draining my battery, but I do not want to uninstall app.
Can It be solved? thanks

This 'feature' is annoying as hell. It seems to destroy my battery and having a location arrow on all the Time screams 'spying'. Give us the opportunity to turn off whatever 'feature' needs to have my 24/7 location please!

I'd like to also echo that Waze 4.0.1.1 is killing my iPhone 6 battery. I set the Location Services for Waze to "Never" to avoid the battery drain, but now the app complains that Location Services is disabled every time it launches.

Need a fix.

After re-reading the referenced fixes, I realized that I needed to turn off "Location Services" within the Waze Settings, not iOS. This got rid of the warning, and appears to turn off the location usage while Waze is in sleep mode.

That's strange. How come I don't have a "location reporting" option? In Settings --> General --> I have Language, Unit, Events Radius & Prevent Auto-Lock only.
