iOS build issue App Store

I have submitted an iOS build to the App Store and they reject the compilation due to this situation:

Guideline 2.5.1 - Performance - Software Requirements

Your app uses the “prefs:root=” non-public URL scheme, which is a private entity. The use of non-public APIs is not permitted on the App Store because it can lead to a poor user experience should these APIs change.

Continuing to use or conceal non-public APIs in future submissions of this app may result in the termination of your Apple Developer account, as well as removal of all associated apps from the App Store.

Next Steps

To resolve this issue, please revise your app to provide the associated functionality using public APIs or remove the functionality using the “prefs:root” or “App-Prefs:root” URL scheme.

I also am having this issue… it seems to be related to the background geolocation …

Ionic - is there any way for us to upgrade our mauron85 to v3?

Could you upgrade to version 3? If you could explain it to me. Thank you

I could not - Ionic uses a wrapper for background geo, and that
wrapper uses v2x - Ionic must update their framework to handle the
new method handling/functions in v3 for v3 to work.

Any updates for this issue? I am having same problem
