So I keep seeing this sort of short cut to an app ( different ones on different days) at the bottom of my screen. I never saw this before the update. Can anyone shed some light on this? The very bottom of the screen in the screen capture above.

I've seen the same but on my phone. I think your device tracks app usage in various locations, and recommends certain apps to you based on where you are.

Having my bookmarks & such synced via iCloud, I see these kind of 'links' often when I don't close out safari. I'm still on iOS 9.x
Not sure why it would just show a link saying Netflix, unless it's what @bballrob mentioned.

Yesterday it was IMDB. I try to close them, even reboot the iPad, but it comes back. This is new to me.
If I get a chance I will compare the settings on my phone to the settings on my iPad and see what the difference is in the settings. I know sometimes updated software will turn things on here and there which I don't necessarily want on.

Are you trying to turn these alerts off?

If so, then this might work, especially if all of the alerts say “Based on your current location” below the name of the app. I don’t have an iPad so I can’t guarantee success. I’ve never seen an alert like that on any iPhone I’ve owned.

Go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > System Services > Location-Based Suggestions and turn that toggle OFF:

If the above doesn’t do the trick for you, you may want to try turning off the setting I’ve pointed out below.

Again, I can’t guarantee either of these suggestions will work for you, but it can’t hurt to try.
