This is as simple as:

Promise.all(permissionRequests).then(function(results) {
    if (results.every(x => x === "granted")) // …

But I don't think it's the right approach to handling permissions in
general. Developers should handle granted permissions as progressive
enhancements, not balk when they don't get all the permissions they
required. Using exceptions for denied permissions sends a completely wrong
message imho, especially when it's combined with Promise.all.
