Goodbye workarounds. RAW photos are coming to iOS 10. Will the camera do the same? Jeffrey Mincey:
One of the iOS 10 gems found earlier this week indicates iOS 10 Photos app will be able to edit RAW files. This will add value to iPhone photo editing apps, yes, but becomes even more important for photographers who want to use the iPad Pro models as their traveling editing companion.
That means, at a basic level, photographers will be able to take photos and get both a .JPG and a .DNG file, which is Adobe’s proprietary RAW format. Regardless of which you prefer, having a camera that can deliver even better photos than iPhone 6s, and an option to store files as RAW will help photographers hone their craft on the road.
Jeffrey even describes the differences between the many RAW photo file formats and Adobe’s .DNG RAW format.
