What is the difference and respective functions of turning on or off location services for "photos" and "camera" ? I guess I don't see what purpose of having the option for photos location services in addition to the camera option?
The Photos setting is for third-party apps that may access your photos...location data is embedded in your photos...more of a privacy setting.
If I always had location services off for the camera, while taking all my photos, then there should be no metadata embedded at all in the first place, so then the photos selection becomes redundant?
Except for any photos synced to your phone. Again, the photos setting is a privacy setting for various apps that you may or may not give permission to access such.
