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?
