<edit-config target="NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription" file="*-Info.plist" mode="merge">
    <string>need location access to find things nearby</string>
</edit-config>

Fixed the problem:


#3

Also another solution:
run this in terminal:

ionic cordova plugin remove cordova-plugin-geolocation

then:

ionic cordova plugin add cordova-plugin-geolocation --variable GEOLOCATION_USAGE_DESCRIPTION="To locate you"

#4

Also you may try adding right after

</platform> 

this:

<edit-config file="*Info.plist" mode="merge" target="NSLocationWhenInUseUsageDescription">
        <string>need location access to find things nearby</string>
    </edit-config>
