Image EXIF data from phone pictures

WordPress seems to be "tossing" the orientation exif data on my images. I've done some testing with some images. When the image is taken with the phone sideways, and the orientation for both the image and the thumbnail says "rotate 90 degrees CW" ...the image is NOT rotated in WordPress Admin area (media library, etc) ...but if I take the link of the image, and open the image directly in my browser, it is rotated directly.

It took me a long time to figure this out, as I had sliders, and 1/2 the images I took with my phone were all wacked out sideways...first it was the slider, then it was a plugin...but it's none of those, it's actually wordpress itself that is doing the damage.
