    Hello, I want to use my iPhone to take some photos of home and post on the internet. For privacy, how do I temporarily disable the inclusion of GPS data to photos? I have wifi at home. I suppose that even I disable internet connection of my iPhone, the last GPS location may be included in the photos. Am I right?

    Even if you turn off the wifi, the GPS will still be on and active. What you need to do is go into location services and disable location services for the Photos application.

    That GPS data is embedded in the EXIF data of the image file. You can use apps like this to view and remove/edit that data from photos you may already have taken.
