    Recently I have noticed that the GPS icon is always on in my notification bar. I have not added any new apps. My battery life has decreased tremendously. Some new update must be causing it. Anyone else having similar issues?

    Some app has a bug which let the app forget to switch off GPS after using it.
    With a restart the GPS icon should disappear.
    Sometimes also it helps to run Google Maps for a minute to make the GPS icon to disappear.
