After I installed the 7.0.2 update on my iPad mini, the location services does not work anymore, it is on but no apps can access my location even Siri. Whenever an app attempts to access my location the ICON does not appear either

IPad mini (wifi), iOS 7.0.2

    Try a Restart. 

    Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red "slide to power off" slider appears, and then slide the slider. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.


     Resetting your settings

    You can also try resetting all settings. Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings. You will have to enter all of your device settings again.... All of the settings in the settings app will have to be re-entered. You won't lose any data, but it takes time to enter all of the settings again.


    Resetting your device

    Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button together for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends this only if you are unable to restart it.


    Or if this doesn't work and nobody else on the blog doesn't have a better idea you can contact Apple. 


    Here is a link to their contacts with most of the information below.

    Yes, Location won't engage.  In fact the button is inactive.  I can't get it to work from the privacy settings.  Anyone know what Apple is doing about this In IOS7?

    Is the new "Background App Refresh" setting turned on globally and for the app? I had an app that was supposed to collect GPS coordinates at certain times and it wasn't grabbing the data. I turned this setting on globally and for the app and it worked.
