    Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap on the Gallery application.
    It has an icon of a photo, and the photo looks like some yellow sand dunes. Underneath it says the word "Gallery".

    The last option is "Event locations" and underneath it says, "Automatically add location to events (uses data connection)".
    So, this automatically adds location to our photos. If we want the option to be selected, which is the default setting, we can leave the white checkmark in the green box.

    If we want to turn it off so that it doesn't add our location to events, then press down on the box until it's empty.
    Tap it again to turn it on again.
