    Hello

    I have been transferring original pictures and videos from my iPad mini 2 to PC (windows 10) with windows default tool . Here I have some questions.

    1. I tried to transfer the same photos to the PC again, they gave different checksums, after I removed their EXIF, they gave the same checksum, which should make sense.

    However, I cannot remove EXIF from videos, they always give different checksums for the same video on different imports. Where is their difference?

    2. As far as I know, iPad mini 2 WiFi only has no GPS function. However, I see pictures imported have GPS information in its properties. Why it is ?

    3. Could video taken by a device with GPS contains any GPS information by itself? How to remove those informations

    I have checked again my pictures taken with my iPad mini 2 (WiFi only), yes, some tken pictures contain GPS information but some do not. Some of the pictures were taken when I travel to a countryside where there was no free WiFi (near beach) and I did not have any wifi eggs. It still contains GPS information. Why it is

    1. EXIF handling on iOS has always been a pain for me, especially after some imports-reimports over years of changing devices. Try just moving the files from the file system (the Win mounted one or use eg iFunbox).
    2. Any WiFi can be used for geolocation, with so so accuracy. If there was any WiFi there it might be the reason. How is the accuracy of those countryside geotags?
    3. AFAIK video EXIF might contain starting coords, but you'll have to check EXIF specs
