How to Turn Off Location Data for Photos in iOS 7

Every photo that you take with any camera comes with what’s called EXIF data, which consists of the settings used for taking the photo (shutter speed, aperture, etc), as well as the date and time the photo was taken. Furthermore, if your camera has GPS built-in, it has the ability to store the location of where the photo was taken, right down to the exact coordinates.

This can be a nifty feature for some users, but most of the time, it’s unnecessary and it can be a huge privacy concern. iOS 7, by default, saves this location data to every photo you take with your iPhone or iPad, so when you send a photo to someone, they can see where you took the photo, right down to which side of the road it was taken on.
