Hi Just wondering how come my mac's location for photos taken at home dont show with a "Home" Location like my iOS devices too but instead on my mac they show as the name of the place where my home is rather than the "Home Location" is this normal behaviour for the Photos for Mac

Thanks Serenity

Sam

I could be wrong, but I think it has to do with inaccuracies in macOS GPS. I get this in Day One (journal app with location tags). It always thinks I'm a few houses down or across the street. My iPhone always gets the location right or close.

After Speaking with Apple it turns out that it will be different on mac because iPhone uses gps more than mac does. Mac uses and prioritises your location Via WIFI so it will be less accurate. so its a provider issue. but personally Iam not sure if thats true or not
