I came across the following prompt:

Enable location services

You can allow this app to determine your location by enabling it in Settings.

Does "it" refer to "determine your location" or "location services"?

You can allow this app to determine your location by enabling Location Services in Settings.

You can allow this app to determine your location by enabling the feature in Settings.

It refers to Location Services which is a feature to determine your location.

Good question. The sentence is ambiguously written, and the only way you can work out the answer is by context and, possibly, by checking out the Settings page of the app.

On balance, I am sure it means 'enabling location services'. However, the sentence is badly written.
