According to Google, the feature works the same on iOS as it does on Android.

Google Maps has pretty much been an integral part of our lives. Slowly but surely, Google is giving users complete control over Maps.

Incognito mode is rolling out to Maps on iOS today. The company recently introduced an Incognito Mode in Google Maps to assuage your concerns, but so far it's been exclusive to Android.

When will Google Maps' Incognito mode be available?

Users won't see personalised features within the app like a restaurant recommendation when the incognito mode is on.

You should probably also factor in the much ballyhooed stand , which adds another $999 to the price tag. It's upgradeable, attractive, and powerful - and it's a symbol that Apple hasn't forgotten its roots.

Location History is now off by default, but if enabled, users will receive emailed reminders for data saved and management. Users will still be able to delete the entire history at once or decide to keep a stretch of either the last three or the last 18 months of location data. "Your Data in Maps lets you quickly access your Location History and other privacy controls with just a few taps", Google mentioned. Once the feature rolls out, it will be easier than ever to pick and choose places on your Timeline and your Location History in order to delete them. Timeline is a feature that saves your Location history or in other words the places that you have visited. "You'll still have the ability to delete all or part of your Timeline by date range from your Location History settings", McGriff added.

By embedding a map, you are agreeing to Google's terms of service.
