    Just noticed something odd in Photos on both iOS10 and Sierra - about 200 of my photos that were previously correctly geotagged at various different locations in the UK are now showing on the map at Grange-over-Sands (in the UK), somewhere that I've never been in my life.

    Is anyone else seeing anything like this?

    Wow. Apple schilling for the Grange-over-Sands tourist board. Follow the money :p

    Seriously though, sounds odd. Perhaps check the exif of the photos using an app or a pc/Mac and see if the metadata is wrong or whether it's the photos app messing up?

    Maybe it can be attributed to their improvements to Apple Maps :D

    Speaking of Photos and geotagging: does the new Photos app Beta let you copy & paste geolocation data from one picture to another? (iPhoto & Aperture let you do this; so far, Photos has not). I'm not talking about typing in the name of a location in the Info pane; I mean copying the location of from one picture (say, in the middle of a large forest with no named landmark) and copying it to another picture that you took at the same place with a camera that lacks GPS.

    Not yet at least. You'll still need another app for that.
