    Exif(exchange image file) of ipad camera images doesn't have geo tags(latitude,longitude) and other info like aperture which it is supposed to have...

    Do I have to change any setting to take geo tags with captured images..

    Any suggestions are highly appreciated...

    Make sure Location Services is turned on for Camera.

    It's not located there. To find location services, go to Settings>General>Restrictions> Location Services and make sure both the location services and camera switches are turned on.

    Hi thanks for pointing out privacy and location options it let me see what are other things available so that I could effectively control the ipad even if I let others use.

    But to my disappointment it didn't get geo tags...

    Please look at the screen shot

    I have enabled the location services for camera now.

    Then I took the following picture

    I looked at the exif data using a online service but I couldn't find any geotags...
    Herewith I have attached the screenshot of that

    When I went to location services I could see a purple arrow which means that it has used location services..

    But why I couldn't see the geo tags...

    I tried the image on numerous sites some are specific to read geotags...

    Please clarify my doubts

    I have spent a couple of days on and off searching with numerous phrases and keywords for this answer of how to attach GPS information to a photograph taken on my wife's iPad mini.
    I am grateful to you for your post, more than two years old though it is; it provided the answer.
    I am aware that coordinates information does not always display. I use a Windows 8 PC and GPS information is present in File Explorer Properties>Details>GPS since I switched the camera from 'OFF' to 'ON' at General>Restrictions>Privacy>Location Services on my wife's device.

    There are apps in the App Store that can add geotagging to your photos. Here's one that I found. GeotagMyPic - Your free tool to geotag and add map locations to your photos

    If you are using iOS 8 (or later in a couple days) there are apps that will let you see your GPS and other photo data from within the Photos app. They work by adding an extension to Photo's share sheet. (the icon with box and up arrow).

    My current favorite is ViewExif by Steven Zhang

    Besides showing you all the data, you can then chose to share the photos with or without the attached EXIF data. In case you need to share it, but don't want to share private meta data, like your location when taking the photo.

    However, it does not provide a way of editing or adding Exif data.
