      Description

      Now that Cordova only supports iOS 4.2+, it would be great if it would include the additional EXIF metadata which exists in original image files. Currently this is all stripped. I've noticed a recent increased trend of iOS apps declaring that they can gain access to EXIF data if the user permits location information. If EXIF & geo data were passed through this would be a huge gain for Cordova.

      Related: a similar issue (CB-295) was opened for Android and it sounds like it was implemented. From the other issue, it sounded like it was a side effect of resizing the image. If no resizing needs to occur (i.e., the untouched original bits are desired), then perhaps this would help?
