Hi there and welcome

The iPhone adds the GPS location to the photos Metadata and its one of the only ways to know it came from the iPhone.

When you create your Smart Album, use the criteria “Photo,” “is,” and “tagged with GPS”

This will show all photos with GPS data.

It's as close as you can get to determining if the photo came from the iPhone.

If someone has two phones and their photos have been exported and the phones have been wiped and are free of data, without a full backup of the iPhones is there no other way to determine which iPhone each photo came from?

No sorry, it does not store the ID of the phone with the photo
