Setting the Date, Time, and Location of iPhone Photos and Videos

Taking photos and filming on the iPhone camera and other digital devices goes beyond the simple act of recording moments. These devices are capable of keeping important information that reveals data such as day, time and location of the photograph to facilitate the organization of the digital roll.

While this is a basic task, it’s not uncommon for some digital cameras, or the iPhone itself, to record this information wrongly. The result is that when you import photos into your Photos app’s Photo Library, the images are likely to appear at different dates, times, and locations than they were actually taken.

Another common problem is that many digital cameras, even professional ones, may not be able to register the location of photos, disorganizing your albums and compromising the creation of Memories and other resources.
