Having issues with app permission popups in iOS 8? Here's how to fix it!

When you launch a new app for the first time, you'll often get a popup asking you for permission to access your location, contacts, calendars, photos, etc. Some people, however, are getting the popup multiple times. Over and over again. If you're running iOS 8 and you're getting multiple popups, don't worry — here's the fix!

How to stop multiple app permission popups

  1. Launch the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Tap on General.
  3. Tap on Reset.
  4. Tap on Reset Location & Privacy.
  5. Type in your passcode if you have one.
  6. Tap on Reset Settings to confirm.

After you do this, all location and privacy permissions will be reset. You'll have to re-authorize everything again the first time you launch an app that needs access to your location or other default apps, but it's a small price to pay in order to stop the popups from happening continuously.

I've done this on two devices and afterwards I only had to authorize things one time for them to stick. If you are having the same issue, give this a try and let me know if it works for you or not!
