Hidden iPhone menu shows you a map of the exact places you’ve been

While some of them simply do it into help serve targeted ads, plenty of smartphone apps require access to your location for more useful purposes, so it’s likely you have location services enabled on your devices for at least a few key apps.

Video: The first things you should delete to free up iPhone 6 storage

The greatest trick Apple pulled last year with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was convincing many buyers to select higher storage versions.
