So I was having a poke around in the privacy settings on my phone toady, came across a tab deep within settings called "Frequent Locations" which by default its enabled. 

This is where things start getting a bit scary, no very scary in fact. In here I discovered my phone has been tracking places I have visited including dates and times I arrived and left these locations, down to the minute. According to it I've visited my home 32 times since installing ios 7.

For anyone wanting have a look or turn it off this is where you can find it. Settings -> Privacy -> Location Services -> System Services -> Frequent Locations

This feature must be making the GCSB's job so much easier.

I don't seem to have that on my iPhone 4, what phone have you got?
I get to the System Services but there's just a list of a few things I can turn off or on.

Its great, it tells me how long its going to take to get to work and home every day. Takes a few days to start working and you get to the info with a swipe down from the top. Pretty much the same as Google Now.

I've got an iPhone 5. If you go right to the bottom of system services there is tab Frequent Locations, click on that.
