IMPORTANT INFORMATIONS:

New requirement to document BT or Camera plist strings in iOS applications

There is a change in the policy to upload an app into Apple Store. As of iOS10 Apple scans app binaries submitted to the App store to check if code uses BT or camera and if so requires developers to include certain keys in their plist to describe reasons for using camera or BT. Since the SDK uses both camera (augmented reality) and BT (HERE positioning) all customers need to include these strings or they will get rejected from the app store which will cost them time (another apple reviews cycle). All of these keys need to be included even if the customer app does not use the related feature.

The following plist strings are required because the SDK may use the camera for AR:
<key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key>
<string>This is needed for the Augmented Reality feature</string>

The following plist strings are required because the SDK may use BT and "Always use Location" for HERE Positioning:
<key>NSBluetoothPeripheralUsageDescription</key>
<string>This is needed to determine your current location</string>
<key>NSLocationAlwaysUsageDescription</key>
<string>This is needed to determine your current location</string>
