    Alternatively, we can press and hold a finger or thumb print on the Home button
    .
    This will unlock the phone and open the home screen. In order to enable GeoTagging, we need to first be sure that Location Services is enabled and that access has been granted to the camera.

  4. 4
    To do this, locate the "Settings" icon, which is a silver and gray box with some gears inside of it
    .
    It is labeled "Settings" at the bottom. This icon could be located anywhere on the home screen.

    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    On the "Settings" menu, scroll down to the third section
    .
    We want the bottom option in that section, which is "Privacy". This option is represented by a hand-shaped icon.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Give one tap to "Privacy"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    Once we've tapped on "Privacy", we need to tap on "Location Services"
    .
    This is the very first option on the "Privacy" menu, and it's marked with a white arrow in a blue box.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Tap on "Location Services", and we will see that "Location Services" can be enabled or disabled using the switch on the right side of the screen
    .
    The green switch means it is enabled.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    If we tap on the switch, this will disable "Location Services"
    .
    We'll just tap on "Cancel" at the bottom of the screen, as this is not what we want to do right now. "Location Services" will need to be turned on in order to be able to use GeoTagging.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    On the "Location Services" menu, we'll scroll down and tap on "Camera"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    On the "Camera" settings screen, make sure that "While Using the App" is the option that is checked, and not "Never"
    .
    This allows access to our location when the application is running or when features of the application are running or visible on the screen. Specifically in terms of GeoTagging, it tags the actual location of any photos or videos where they are taken. The only exception to this is if we are in an area where we don't have connectivity or the ability to establish a location.

    Now we're going to tap the arrow at the top left corner of the screen to go back
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    On the "Location Services" screen, again confirm that the "Camera" is set to "While Using"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    Scroll up and confirm that "Location Services" is turned on
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Tap back on "Privacy" at the top left corner
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    On the "Privacy" screen, again confirm that "Location Services" is turned on
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help

    .

    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    We have the option to take photos, and our photos will now be tagged with the name of the place they were taken at the top
    .
    We can see in this demonstration that the photo on the screen was taken in Tbilisi. This is because we have GeoTagging turned on, and this lets myself and others see where our photos were taken.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    We can press the Home button now to return to the home screen of our phone
    .
    Then we can begin using the phone for anything else we would like to do, including taking some photos and having them tagged automatically with our location.

Smaller-screen iPhone models (4, 4S, 5, 5c, 5S, and SE) may not show the location when the picture has been opened. Instead, open the picture and tap on the back button in the upper-left corner. Now, tap on the "Photos" folder at the bottom of the screen. Your pictures will have the location tag shown above their thumbnails.

Photos already taken ... is there a way to add the location at this time?

Photos are arranged by date, but I want them to show the location as well. When the photos were taken the location option was not selected.
