The first three apps to support the iPhone 5s’s M7 motion co-processor — Strava Run (free), MotionX-24/7 ($3), and Argus (free)—are now available in the App Store. All of the apps are fitness-based, though features differ from app to app. Due to these apps now using the M7, some privacy permissions and dialog boxes that haven’t been seen within the iPhone 5s have now been revealed.

Motion Activity appears by default in privacy settings, with all apps requesting motion data appearing in that category with on/off switches. As the M7 is allowing for more motion data reporting than ever before on an iPhone, each app must request motion-tracking permission, notably separately from access to GPS functionality.
