Here is how to get the metadata of your photos on iPhone

All photos taken with a modern device like your iPhone and even most cameras have what is known as encrypted metadata. Metadata is just a way of structuring data, in this case EXIF data from the device used to take the photo, including the lens, file format, photo resolution and other information.

Most of this data is created automatically by your iPhone or camera device, but you also have access to change this data on your PC as you see fit. For example, you can set a Photographer metadata field with your name, you can even view and change the Make and Model of the device used to take the photo, among others.
