Retrieve date on 'satellite' basemap tiles

Is there a way I can show the user of my esri satellite imagery basemap the date of the different tiles?

To be more precise, I have a webmap with the satellite basemap and a feature layer containing information on roads etc. So sometimes both layers coincide well but sometimes they don't. In case they don't I would like the user to be able to check which data source is more up-to-date, the satellite imagery or my feature service. So for my feature service I know the date but for the satellite imagery I would need to retrieve that information dynamically for each tile for example by having the user click on a tile or anything of that kind. Is there a way to do that through the javascript API?
