Do you know that your iPhone keeps track of the significant locations you visit? This feature can be quite handy, as it allows you to see a detailed history of the places you’ve been. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of accessing and viewing these significant locations on your iPhone.

Step 1: Accessing Significant Locations

To begin, open the Settings app on your iPhone. Scroll down and tap on Privacy. On the next screen, tap on Location Services.

Scroll down to the bottom and select System Services. Here, you will find an option called ‘Significant Locations’. Tap on it.

Step 2: Authenticate Your Identity

If this is your first time accessing significant locations, your iPhone will prompt you to authenticate your identity. You can use either Face ID, Touch ID, or enter your passcode to proceed.

Step 3: Viewing Significant Locations

Once you have authenticated your identity, you will see a list of significant locations that your iPhone has tracked. Each location is accompanied by a date and time stamp. You can tap on any location to view more details about it.


  • The list may take a few moments to load if you have visited numerous significant locations.
  • If the list is empty or does not contain any recent locations, it means that either this feature is disabled or there are no significant locations available yet.

Step 4: Viewing Location Details

Tapping on a specific location will open a new screen with detailed information about that particular place. Here, you can view the exact address, coordinates, and a map displaying the location.

Step 5: Deleting Significant Locations

If you wish to remove a specific significant location from the list, you can swipe left on it and tap on Delete. Alternatively, if you want to delete all significant locations, you can tap on Clear History at the top-right corner of the screen. Confirm your action by tapping Clear History again in the pop-up window.


Deleting significant locations will not affect other iPhone features or data. It only removes the history of your visited places.

And there you have it! Now you know how to access and view significant locations on your iPhone.

This feature can come in handy for various reasons, such as tracking your travel history or checking frequently visited places. Remember that privacy is important, so make sure to keep your iPhone secure and be cautious while sharing this information with others.
