Is there any way to get GPS location data from a smartphone onto the rebel t6?
I think you would need to download the image files, and do it on a computer.

The only way to geotag is to use the Canon GP-E2, as shown in the system map on page 278 of the manual.
If you have a Mac, HoodahGeo is a good tool for geotagging photos during post-processing.

There are third party apps that do this (depending on which OS you use) and there are apps that let you manually tag a GPS location (and store the location data in the image file).
What OS are you using?
Some Canon models have a built-in GPS and some can use an optional GPS accessory.
To use one of the apps that can take GPS data from another device, you need a GPS that supports logging (it writes a file where it writes your geolocation at some regular invterval (that could be once every few seconds, once per minute, etc.) and the software takes uses the date/time when the photo was taken and then finds the same corresponding time in the GPS log file to determine where you were "at that time" then updates the GPS data into the image file. (the clocks must be sychronized to show the same time.)
I no longer use the software method because my current cameras have GPS capability ... but this is how I used to do it before I had a camera with a built-in GPS.
