I think it's due to geolocation.

There are two ways of finding your location. The first one is with the help of cell towers. This method is appropriate when a GPS signal is unavailable because it is not quite exact enough. The second method allows obtaining information about your position with the help of a built-in GPS chip inside your smartphone. This chip uses satellite data to calculate your exact position.

Google and Apple use their own services: Google Map and MapKit correspondingly.
