I received the original image file of a picture taken on an iPhone 6 plus. I am interested in the metadata, particularly the dates the picture was taken. I was able to acquire the date the image was "taken," but I also understand metadata can be modified, and that the date is extremely easy to modify. Can I make the following conclusion from the metadata: (1) This date accurately represents the day the picture was taken or (2) The metadata was modified to this day
Are there other possible conclusions?
Edit: If the metadata was never modified and the date on the device the photo was taken is correct, can we conclude that the date in the metadata is a true and accurate representation of when the picture was taken in this scenario?
