    Hey,
    That little arrow means you have "localization services" on.
    Hope it helps.

    I just noticed this myself when I was listening to an audio book at the gym! Didn't know that it was also to indicate that apps were using the location data in settings.

    So thanks for asking the question, leoc51 and thanks for answering Dedzdedz! :)

    There are two different kinds of arrows. This one shows that location services are on:

    This one shows that you are listening to music (perhaps something else):

    Yes--I have seen both on my iPhone, but hadn't noticed the arrow for when things are playing like music or audio books. That was the first when I was at the gym! :)

    Funny how you learn new things on your devices after owning it for months! :)
