“What does significant location mean on iPhone?

Significant Places is a feature in iPhone that tracks the places you visit more often and saves the place you visit most often. The little-known feature is buried deep within your Settings and shows your most frequently visited locations over the past few months. But you don’t need to worry about that as even Apple cannot read the important location data, which means your information is not shared with anyone and your privacy is not violated by the company. And even if a pal is using your iPhone, they can’t get into Significant Locations without getting past a Face ID or Touch ID lock first. However, if you’re really worried that a spouse might sneak their way onto your iPhone and catch you at the pub when you were supposed to be at work, it might be worth deactivating the system – or clearing your history at the very least.
