Meanwhile, Apple has also rolled out a new software update namely, iOS 13.3.1. Users will see improvements on FaceTime and iMessages, along with bug fixes.

This chip is only available on the iPhone 11 series phones - iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. The basic functionality of this app is to provide an enhanced AirDrop experience.

To disable this feature on your iPhone 11 series device follow these steps:

1. Open the settings app of the phone

2. Go to the privacy tab

3. Select location services

4. Tap on system services

5. There will be an option named Networking and Wireless, where there will be toggle switch, which you can switch to turn off the feature

However, it must be noted that turning off the location-tracking functionality of the U1 chip will also disable the use of location services that enhance Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections on the device.

The user will also not be able to get the enhanced AirDrop experience that Apple brought with the iOS 13.1 update in September last year.
