Two ways to handle the "Some App wants to use your current location" alert

The problem is that this kind of UIAlert appears before Instruments can take control of the app.

In most cases, applications that ask for location services, access to contacts, access to photos, etc, are violating the Mobile HIG guidelines.

from the HIG

Ask permission at app startup only if your app can’t perform its primary function without the user’s data.

People will not be bothered by this if it’s obvious that the main function of your app depends on knowing their personal information.

Calabash iOS: Comprehensive exploration of programmatically changing a UITextField's auto-correct, capitalization, and spell-check settings

Tested on iOS 8 Simulators with all the Keyboard settings "On" (default state).

Partially tested on iOS 7.

  1. You can turn auto-correct on or off.
  2. Changing the capitalization has no effect.
  3. Changing the spell-check settings has no effect.

Any state changes need to be made before the keyboard is presented.
