Here’s how to view photos by location on a map with iPhone or iPad.

You might lose your iPhone or iPad, but Find My iPhone pretty much guarantees you’ll always at least know generally where it is, whether you left it at a friend’s house or at the bar (I did this once. Luckily my iPad was still there when I returned.) But what if you misplace your iPhone within your house and just can’t seem to find it anywhere? You can also use Find My iPhone to make your iPhone ping. You can do this from icloud.com or from a family member’s iPhone or iPad, if they are on the same Family Sharing plan as you. Either way, here’s how to use Find My iPhone to find iPhones misplaced in the house.

For some, the  frequent locations tracking feature on iPhone is just a little too big brother. Essentially, your iPhone tracks where you go, and if there is a location you visit often enough, it marks it as a frequent location. Your iPhone uses this feature to predict where you live and work, then give you automatic routing information when you get into your car to drive there. But if this feature is just a little too creepy for your liking, here’s how to turn off Frequent Locations on your iPhone.

Apple's free Find My Friends app allows you to track the location of friends and family members who have given you permission. The feature probably works best for keeping track of teenagers running around town, and Siri is happy to help you locate them.

In iOS 10, there are now two ways Siri makes app suggestions on the Lock screen. The first is the Siri app suggestions that appear in the Widget pane. The second are the time and location-based app suggestions that appear in the lower left corner of the Lock screen in the same place app icons appear when you’re using Handoff. If you don’t appreciate this feature, it’s easy to turn off app suggestions.
