I play music in my car from my iPod Classic 160 GB, the only Apple product I really like
Unfortunately, they don't make them anymore
Perhaps the difference between the French government usage and your car usage is that you open the app to select a song, it connects using BlueTooth and after that it keeps working until you disconnect (walk away or stop the car).
I'm guessing your music doesn't continue playing after you get back to your car or restart it.
This COVID app needs to connect even when you haven't opened the app and connected to other devices.
I would imagine some of the more limited Bluetooth profiles (like A2DP, which is the music playing profile) are implemented entirely within the operating system, so are trusted services that can operate in background processing. On the other hand, transferring arbitrary data is probably going to be implemented within a third party application, so isn't trusted and thus isn't permitted background processing access?
That said, the relevant Apple docs do talk about applications having background access to Bluetooth, but it's limited in comparison to foreground access.

From my daily e-mail from the Oxford English Dictionary:
As our lexicographers monitor the language developments related to Covid-19, 21 words, sub-entries, and revisions have been added to the Oxford English Dictionary in our latest update, including self-isolation, flatten the curve, and social distancing.
It is a rare experience for lexicographers to observe an exponential rise in usage of a single word in a very short period of time, and for that word to come overwhelmingly to dominate global discourse, even to the exclusion of most other topics. Covid-19, a shortening of coronavirus disease 2019, and its various manifestations has done just that. As the spread of the disease has altered the lives of billions of people, it has correspondingly ushered in a new vocabulary to the general populace encompassing specialist terms from the fields of epidemiology and medicine, new acronyms, and words to express the societal imperatives of imposed isolation and distancing. It is a consistent theme of lexicography that great social change brings great linguistic change, and that has never been truer than in this current global crisis.

I feel no.
There are three important things in a task item.
3. And all the pile of attributes. Assignee, date, created by, Link, severity, attachments, etc etc.
99% of the time, what a small project needs is just the title & description.
In the current project, 80% of the task's context/meaning is understood just with the title.
Only if something needs elaboration, they will go to check Description.
Now how the new version Jira shows me the screen is, (COLUMN-wise Vertical space, LEFT to RIGHT)
5% the standard full-time menu - On the extreme Left.
5% the titles, the List of items' titles.
60% on the Description for the currently selected item title (Big empty space @ the middle)
30% significant space occupied by attributes that are not used, For the selected item (Extreme right )
In the 5% vertical space I for the TITLES, I can only see 3 items at a time.
Just imagine. I have close to 160 items created.
And I have a tiny window of 3 items visibility per scroll.
I feel like ditching JIRA and running back to a spreadsheet.
I've worked with Jira before and it worked well for us.
Enter a title and description and go.
There's a lot of bloat in the interface though and I'm not familiar enough with Jira to know if or how it can be reduced.
I know cards and boards are customizable though so I'm guessing you can make it work for you.
GitHub is pretty good as well.
And I've heard good things about GitLab although I haven't used their ticketing system all that much.
I've used Azure DevOps for ticketing as well, but only because it was already there (we used Scrum, but they have Kanban as well).
The real power of GitHub, GitLab and DevOps is not their ticketing though, but their overall package of (Git) source control, ticketing and CI/CD pipelines.
You might be better off with a simple Kanban board, such as Trello.
You can use Trello for anything because it's just a board, simple.
