    So my phone does the location based notification thing on the bottom left hand side of the screen and my wife's phone does not (both iphone 6). I have looked at all the settings I could think of and can see no differences. What controls this functionality?

    And what I mean by location based is if I drive up to the Apple store or AT&T I see the a little AT&T/App store icon I can swipe to open.

    This isn't a super cool feature or anything I am just curious how to turn it back on (or off later).

    Thanks

    The setting for this is under > Settings > iTunes & App Store > Suggested Apps

    You also have to have location services turned on, obviously. Those options are under > Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services

    As I type this I realize once again how complex iOS settings have become. But at least we still get the option to turn stuff off, which is great.

    I didn't know about the first one but she had it set and of course the second one is set. It still didn't work. Honestly the feature isn't *that* cool just interesting that it doesn't work on her phone.

    Thanks though.

    You should also check Settings > General > Handoff & Suggested Apps

    Also are Bluetooth and WiFi enabled on both phones?

    Bluetooth needs to be on.
    This does use the battery quicker.

    The latest Bluetooth and BLE shouldn't really be using much battery when not actively in use and basically just in the background.

    Curious as to why bluetooth needs to be on? Is this something to do with the iBeacon thing? Does that work over bluetooth LE?
