New iPhone 2.0 Beta Adds Photo Geo-tagging

A new iPhone 2.0 Beta Update released privately to a select group adds geo-tagging support for photos, according to an AppleInsider report. The release is labeled build 5A292g.

In addition, Apple has added a new switch under the iPhone's general preference pane that will allow users to enable/disable Location Services on a system-wide basis.
