Why iOS Apps That Want To Access Pictures Ask For Location

Khol Vinh on iOS apps that want to access pictures and ask for location access:

From a technical perspective, this dialog box makes sense, because the sensitive information at question isn’t the photos but the location data.

I have seen Dropbox ask for this before and I never understood why. Now I do. Really poorly worded dialog.
