One of the more significant privacy changes in Android 11 deals with further restricting background location. The OS already reminds users about such app access, and Google has found that this results in people downgrading or outright denying the location permission over 75% of the time.
Smartphones are getting more and more powerful, but the battery capacity is lagging behind. Vendors are always trying to squeeze some battery saving features into the firmware with each new Android release.
