With the iOS 15 update, iPhone and iPad users can keep track of visited places, including frequently visited places. Apple has added the Cloud-connected based Significant Locations feature on the iOS 15 updates to keep track of all visited placed using Apple Maps. While using this feature, many users cannot see Significant Locations on iOS 15.

Some users claim that Apple keeps tracking users’ every move with Significant Locations. However, Apple says that Significant Locations is end-to-end encrypted and cannot be read by the phone manufacturer. You can also disable Significant Locations on iOS 15.
