      Description

      iOS 14 has a new feature, a little green dot that indicates the device is capturing  data from the mic or camera.

      https://www.the-sun.com/lifestyle/tech/1595314/iphone-green-dot-orange-camera-microphone-notification-ios-14/

      In our app, we start the Qt camera stack and this seems to activate it, even though we aren't acquiring video or images yet.

      This makes the user think we are spying on them. There should be a way to avoid the green dot until we are actually capturing multimedia.
