Apple keeps a record of all frequent locations visited as the iPhone tracks your duration spent at the location and what type of transportation was used to get there. This is done by a small device which logs all your locations and how many times you have visited them by tracking your ‘Significant Locations’.
Apple claim this allows them to provide a personalised service such as traffic routes and help in building photo memories. Google also records user’s location data, through location history found if you have a Google account activated on your phone.
The location data is encrypted and stored on your iPhone and it is not distributed without consent. Do look at this part of your device, it is a bit creepy.
If you want to stop Apple from tracking your ‘Significant Locations’ follow the steps to turn it off and delete the history from your iPhone, so the data is untraceable.
It is likely that Apple may still have access to your data, at least you can prevent access to your location data.
