2. For iOS users, it does not need to turn on the Location Service for the App.
3. If we have a SwitchBot Robot Vacuum Cleaner in our account, we need to authorize and turn on the Location Service for the SwitchBot App in order to get the WiFi SSID of the Cleaner itself, regardless of iOS or Android users.
