Does iOS 8 know where I'm planning to go?

I pulled down the Notification Center screen and it says, "right now it will take you about 33 min to get to Fosston".

I don't have anything scheduled for today but every Sunday I go to church in Fosston. Has iOS learned that based on previous experience!

Yup. Check out Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Frequent Locations.

Yes. It collects location data of frequently visited places to give you an estimated arrival time.

Well there you go. I so rarely use the Notification Center function anyway. Too far to reach up there to swipe down. I know I can double tap the home button to bring the top half into reach but now that's two steps. Convince gone.

It's great. I really want this to improve to learn more about me. Google Now has some pretty good features that take advantage of the things your phone knows about you.

Though I've recently moved apartments and though Siri knows this, the notification centre still tells me how long it will be to drive to my old apartment.

ALSO I don't drive - so walking or public transport times on there would be better for me...

Personally, I hate this feature. Every morning when I'm running late for work, it likes to rub it in my face.. "It will take you 45 minutes to get to work.." geez thanks. :cool:;):D

How do people just 'not use' Notification Center??? :eek: My friend is the same way, I don't know why but it just bothers me. I turn on my phone and see so many notifications, some from messages, some missed calls, some clash of clans notifications, things from Instagram, Facebook, Twitter... As soon as I unlock my phone all of these disappear and I don't know where to go first to address these notifications. Notification Center helps me get on track and address everything that happened when I was away. Couldn't live without it. Don't know how you people go without using this xD There's nothing wrong with it, you all use your devices the way you want, and I will use mine the way I want, but I am just amazed when I hear this sort of thing from people hahaha.

Anyway, if you want this to stop, just go to Settings>Privacy>Location Services>System Services>Frequent Locations. I believe from here you can delete some or all of your frequent locations, and also turn off the feature entirely if you so desire.
