On my iPhone, location is turned on and set correctly on my photos (I can see the data by swiping up in Photos), and the location is correctly uploaded to iNaturalist when I upload in the field using Seek. When I upload from a photo, however, the location information about the photo is not imported. Is there a work-around?
If your location infor is not uploading from photos, ut is from the app and other apps you probably turned it off specifically for photos at some point.
Settings → Privacy → Location Services → Photos
Check there. Location Services can be turned on in general, and also turned off for specific apps at the same time
For privacy I have it turned off specifically for my photos and turned on for iNat and a few other apps, so my phone acts exactly as you’re describing.
Thanks for the tip - I think that the problem was that several photos were taken with Seek and not uploaded to iNat. These were saved in Photos but without location information :-(
