I noticed in System Services under Location Services settings in Privacy that there is a separate toggle for "Wi-Fi Networks". Is this only for Apple-specific things, or is it possible to access Location Services to better target matching Wi-Fi networks to return with `NEHotspotHelper` ... without asking for Background Location Permission ("Always") which causes the location arrow to remain turned on all of the time (even if our app doesn't even initiate CLLocationManager ever)?
NEHotspotHelper allows you to create apps that help the user navigate a hotspot (a Wi-Fi network that require some sort of user interaction, typically authentication, before providing access to the wider Interent). It not intended to be use as a substitute for Core Location and provides no facilities along those lines.
