The pictures that you take with your iPhone 5 camera can include information about the geographical location at which the picture was taken. This information can then be used when you upload the picture to a social media service to help identify the location of the image. But if you would prefer that your pictures not include any location data, then you might wish to stop tagging your iPhone pictures with this information.
Control over this setting can be turned on or off on the Location Services menu of your device. Our article below will show you how to turn off any geotagging that your iPhone is doing to your pictures.
