How to See the Date and Time a Photo Was Taken On iPhone

EXIF data is a spellcheck tool for photographers, providing details of the picture like the lens used, aperture, focal length, and more. Software on Mac and Windows extracts this data. These apps also show the date and time the photo was taken. Today, we will focus on the iPhone. Let’s get started.

Exif Wizard

Possibly the simplest and most straightforward way to get EXIF data from your iPhone photos is Exif Wizard. Upon opening the app, it will request permission to access your photos, which you should grant as it is necessary for Exif to provide you with information. The homescreen displays all the available albums on your device. Choose an album (Camera Roll) to browse the photos, and then select a photo by tapping on it.

As for sharing options, the only available option is Mail. Tapping on it opens a popup where you can name the file, and then opens the default mail compose box with all the details already included. You can delete any unwanted information before sending.
