Description

Requests permission to use location services while the app is in the foreground.
When the current authorization status is notDetermined, this method runs asynchronously and prompts the user to grant permission to the app to use location services. The user prompt contains the text from the NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription key in your app’s Info.plist file, and the presence of that key is required when calling this method.
