Even if you've denied location access, apps might be able to infer it through Bluetooth connections. A retail store, for instance, might have Bluetooth beacon trackers to detect people who have its app installed. Now, apps must specially ask for that permission. (There are exceptions when a music app, for instance, wants to stream to headphones you've already paired with the phone.)

When sharing photos through the Photos app, you can now remove embedded location information by tapping on the small "Options" link at the top of the screen. Location is shared by default, and you need to turn it off each time.
