    How did it know??

    6 days a week at basically the same time, I drive over to see my brother who is in a long term care facility. Today I was about to head over there and decided to quickly check my phone (5) first, and just on a whim I swiped down on the main screen to check the calendar. I was shocked when above the calendar was, "right now it will take you 8 minutes to drive to xxxx (the street address of the care facility). "

    What the ???

    What in the phone or apps is keeping track of my movements so close that it knew in all probability that I would be momentarily heading to that location? I also checked the screen when I got to the facility and it had changed to tell me how long it would take to get back home.

    Now that's a little scary!

    If you don't like it

    Go to Settings, Privacy, Location Services. Scroll to the bottom and select System Services

    Then select Frequent Locations

    And turn the toggle switch off. You can also clear your frequent locations history.

    I never knew this feature existed! I think it's kinda neat, but-does it suck up data? Meaning, when I leave home & wifi, will it use data to calculate where I'm going once I'm not on wifi? It would not be fun to get hit with a big bill due to data overage.

    Where did you see this info? Was it in the notification center, or Apple maps? Sounds cool

    It shows up in your notification center, and it is pretty cool.

    It's a pretty cool feature, idk, why it's not working for everyone. But sure there will be a fix.

    I will take quite a few visits to set up a pattern that iOS will notice. It took about two weeks of back and forth to work before it started to show up on my notification centre.
