The latest beta for iOS 13.3.1 features a new toggle in the system settings to turn off Ultra Wideband features.
This is important because, shortly after the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro launched, users found out the phone would periodically track their location even after they turned off location services for every single app on their phones, in compliance with Ultra Wideband regulations.

Apple also explained that the location tracking was happening entirely on-device, so theoretically that data would be difficult to compromise.
We don’t know exactly when Apple plans on adding the Ultra Wideband toggle to iPhone 11s via a software update, but if it’s in beta now, it can’t be too far off.
