    Ok, so I think the "places" part of the camera app is really cool, but I have a few questions about it...

    If you have your phone on airplane mode, will it still be able to show where the picture was taken?
    I thought the answer would be no, but I tried taking a picture on airplane mode, and it still showed where the picture was taken. The thing is, I took this picture in my house (where I've taken many pictures before), and thought that might have affected why it actually showed up.

    And my second question is, if I were to take pictures from my current iPhone camera, then transfer to a new iPhone, would the new iPhone be able to tell where they were taken from?

    Thanks! :apple:

    No and yes. I just tried the Airplane mode and my pic don't show GPS data. Yes because I just got a refurb today and all of my pics still have the GPS data associated with them.

    The coordinates are stored on the photo's EXIF data - so if you post a picture online, ANYONE can see where it was taken if they wanted to know.

    I agree, Airplane mode turns off the GPS, and the location metadata will transfer with the photos to another phone or to your computer.
