How Does Iphone Know Where My Car Is Parked

Assuming you are referring to the Apple Maps feature that allows users to find their parked car:

According to Apple the feature uses a combination of the iPhone’s sensors including the GPS accelerometer and Compass to determine the vehicle’s location. The iPhone must be in the vehicle when it is parked and have Bluetooth turned on for the feature to work.

When the user activates the feature they will see a blue dot on the map indicating their car’s location. The feature will also provide walking directions from the current location to the parked car.

If the user’s iPhone is not in the vehicle when they park the feature will not be able to track the car’s location. In addition the feature only works for vehicles that are parked on public streets and not in private parking lots or garages.
