Figured out a way to present an alert and jump to "Settings"

I figured out a way to pop out an alert and jump to settings if user tapped "Don't allow". Below comes my code:

func authorizationFailedWithStatus(_ status: CLAuthorizationStatus) {
        // Show an alert
        let alertController = UIAlertController(title: "What? Disallowed!?", message: "Are you serious???", preferredStyle: UIAlertControllerStyle.alert)

        alertController.addAction(UIAlertAction(title: "OK Jump to Settings", style: .default, handler: { (action) in // "action" never being used in this closure, is there a way to improve this?!
            if let settingsURL = URL(string: UIApplicationOpenSettingsURLString + Bundle.main.bundleIdentifier!) {
                UIApplication.shared.open(settingsURL, options: [:], completionHandler: nil)

        self.present(alertController, animated: true, completion: nil)


BTW: this is on Xcode 9 and Swift 4. This code might help, although I believe there's a better way for sure.
