    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
