    Anyone know of a tweak that puts the date on pictures? I used to use camstamp but it does not work on 5s.

    Alternatively, you can use third-party AppStore apps like ProCam or ProCam 2 - see my review at http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1651315 for more info.

    Why would you want to destroy a photo with a date stamp? Metadata is automatically attached which has date, location, camera info, etc. This is 2014, not 1990...

    Do you fax your friends to ask them what they're doing this weekend? HEHE

    The OP probably needs to use the camera in an official, documented manner.

    Timestamps on photos are no more legally accepted than metadata these days. Since photoshop, one can insert any date they want, so it's not super reliable as evidence that a photo was taken on the date the time stamp indicates.

    What's to say you get the tweak you're looking for, set your clock to a year ago when you moved into your rental, take a pic showing it's trashed, then say "look the timestamp says it was from the day I moved out!" ... nobody's going to buy that. Even in the old days where film cameras did that, you simply change the date. It's definitively never been and never will be anything "official"

    I didn't say anything about legal.

    I'm also interested if there is tweak that turns it on on the stock camera. I just want it for memory's and it looks pretty nice on some pictures while on vacation.

    "Official, Documented manner" usually implies legally.
