Improved Location/GPS BT connection with iOS v13.2

Just a quick heads up.

I recently updated the operating system version on my iPhone to iOS v13.2. My (main) camera is an a7Riii.

Prior to the phone OS update, I routinely found that after any period of non-use (e.g. overnight etc), the camera would no longer find the location data connection via BT (BT symbol would light up, but the location data connection would not complete). To get a GPS connection I found it necessary to force-quit the Imaging Edge app and re-launch it - after which connection and reconnection would be fine for up to (at most) a day or so.

Since the update to iOS 13.2, I've found the BT location data connection to be rock solid. It will instantly reconnect even after multiple days, and I have (so far) not needed to force quit and relaunch the Imaging Edge app at all.

Needless to say, this is a significant improvement. Hoping it stays that way.

Interested to know if others are seeing the same thing?
