Location data use and iOS apps?

When perusing iOS apps in Applications, I've noticed some descriptions say:

This app may use your location even when it isn't open, which can decrease device battery life.

Does/can this apply even when the user selects:

ALLOW LOCATION ACCESS > Never or While Using the App ?

The last thing I want is an app using battery when I'm not using it.

Apple has said in the past, not to worry, no need to Force Quit if it's in the background, it's not using battery.

Obviously this isn't true of it's kept 'alive' by Background App Refresh.

As is, I turn my iPads Off if I know it's through for the day.

Even then it still drains, just slower.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
