Don't quote me on this, but I believe iOS already has this.. But it's the developer that needs to say they'll use this type of location data - which of course they won't.

Android has had that distinction since version 1, actually.


Some apps do use coarse permission (which maps roughly to wifi/cell tower location).

Yes, but I can't say "sorry, you're only getting coarse location" to an app that wants precise location permission.
