    This issue has been driving me absolutely insane! I found a workaround similar to what your article states, except I’m running into the problem when uploading the .jpg files to Shutterfly. Typically, the .jpg files from my phone had the date taken saved with the file, but when I convert the .heic files, it apparently disappears. Have you looked into keeping this data with the photos at all? Right now I am trying to download them from my phone on to my mac (with a cable) to see if that helps keep the data somehow. I’m working on a yearbook photo book with 800 photos, so I don’t want to waste my time renaming them all, etc.
