    Came across this recently in iOS 11.1 as well, although I recall some posts about this sort of thing in the past too, I think back in iOS 10 even.

    This is a serious flaw and privacy concern...

    This was a big problem for me when iOS 11 was first released. I was determined not to install a beta on my phone but I was having a lot of issues with Maps so I gave in and installed 11.1 which fixed Maps for me. Other than restarting the device I don’t know any way to resolve this. I find it interesting that issues I previously had I now see being reported by others. Issues others previously had I now see. iOS 11 has just been a total whack-a-mole release.

    I had this happen on 10.3.3. iOS 11 fixed it for me and I haven’t seen it since. Make sure maps is turned off in iCloud too

    Just checked on my phone: also seeing this.

    Toggling Maps off in iCloud setttings, then back on cleared recents for me.

    Unfortunately toggling maps on and off (mine are off in iCloud normally) doesn't work for me, nor does it work coupled with a restart of the phone.

    Any other option? I'm on 11.2.1 on my iPhone 8, it also happened on 11.2.

    I tried the toggling of the iCloud/Maps but as you noticed that doesn’t work. I also went to my iPad Pro to delete them and the same thing would occur. You could delete a couple but then you do one more and the others come back just as on my 8 plus. It’s an iCloud issue that just repopulates what you’ve deleted. Reminds me of my Apple Pay issue. The only other option would be to sign out of iCloud but I believe as soon as you sign back in they’ll all be back.

    This can only be solved either on the backend at iCloud or by new software.

    Had this problem for several releases before IOS 11 but it seems to have gone away with 11

    I’m wondering if some of this is due to Siri suggestions. Some of those destinations in the list may be undeletable or at least will eventually reappear.

    I don't understand why it's not working for you guys, turn off iCloud maps in every idevices and that should do the trick

    I've had those disabled all the time basically, but it doesn't seem to affect this issue with maps.

    Haven't had that enabled at any point at all. But just enabled and disabled it and looks like that cleared things out (along with favorites).

    If you turn that off, and leave it off, all of your favorites will be gone as well. We just want to be able to clear recents and suggestions. And if you turn that back on eventually your recents and favorites will repopulate.

    That’s the problem if you leave it off, no more favorites. That’s not an option for me. I also tried going to Location Services/System/Significant locations. I cleared those locations but it didn’t affect the recents in Maps. I don’t know if I lost any other functionality doing that but I thought I’d try.

    I had this before but sometimes if you keep trying to delete it then it will stay deleted and won’t appear. You can try force close Maps and try deleting recent history. It’s not as aggressive on the latest beta though.

    This might have been fixed for real on 11.3. Just updated the phone and cleared out the history: the old history has not returned. Have been checking every few minutes and recents is still clear with iCloud > Maps on.
