Facing issue regarding bluetooth usage description

I uploaded my app to Apple’s App Store Connect for testing using Test Flight.

Your delivery was successful, but you may wish to correct the following issues in your next delivery:

ITMS-90683: Missing Purpose String in Info.plist - Your app’s code references one or more APIs that access sensitive user data. The app’s Info.plist file should contain a NSBluetoothAlwaysUsageDescription key with a user-facing purpose string explaining clearly and completely why your app needs the data. Starting Spring 2019, all apps submitted to the App Store that access user data are required to include a purpose string. If you’re using external libraries or SDKs, they may reference APIs that require a purpose string. While your app might not use these APIs, a purpose string is still required. You can contact the developer of the library or SDK and request they release a version of their code that doesn’t contain the APIs. Learn more (https://developer.apple.com/documentation/uikit/core_app/protecting_the_user_s_privacy).

After you’ve corrected the issues, you can upload a new binary to App Store Connect.


I tried searching for the word ‘bluetooth’ but could not find any occurrences in my workspace.

As my app is not currently using any Bluetooth features, I would like to avoid this issue. Please advise on how this can be resolved.

Please also share which are the TomTomOnlineSDK libraries that use bluetooth.
