How to remove location data from photos on your iPhoneSource: iMore

Having a location attached to photos can be a great way to organize images, but there are a lot of reasons that you might not want a record of your location on photos you share. If you're concerned about keeping your location private, you can remove it before you share your photos with others.

If you want to take it a step further and stop your location from being attached to your photos and videos in the first place, you can do that, too. If you often find yourself sharing photos with locations removed, you might just want to turn it off altogether anyway.
