There could be two possible ways why your phone’s location services are on always-on mode. First is if your phone is searching for date and time and other is that if some app is accessing your location.
1. To turn off location services due to date and time:
1. Go to Settings > General > Date & Time.
2. Now, if the ‘Set Automatically’ toggle bar is on (green), turn it off.
3. This will restrict your phone from searching for your location to automatically saving your phone’s battery life.

2. To turn off location services due to application:
1. Go to Settings > Privacy.
2. Tap on Location Services.
