    Turn off location and back on again after a minute. Now location icon appears in status bar indicating that location is being accessed by some app presently. Normally, the icon disappears after a few seconds when app or system has done using location but in my device it never disappears. Only way to make it disappear is by restarting the device.
    Also, I noticed that if I turn the location on while I have another app open on screen, say OnePlus community app, the icon won't appear in status bar. It appears back on when I go to home screen. If open any app, the icon goes away after a minute but as soon as I go home screen, it appears.

    I am having the same issue in my Oneplus7T. From last week it is happening, even if I turn my location off.

    It's because the onplus scout ( the launcher) using location by default... Try to turn off permission from its app info...and then restart... Read that they may fix it on next update
