Future Apple gumble could lock fanbois out of their own devices

Possibly just gives a "we trust this place" back to the app. The app probably has to ask for GPS coordinates if it needs them - as that's a different "do you want to share your location with <app name>?" type situation.

Or (more likely) we're talking about unlocking the device (so apps have no knowledge of location security status).
