Apple's Camera app doesn't support RAW capture, but as the company revealed at the iPhone 7 launch, it supports third-party DNG support through an API. Adobe has taken advantage of that with Lightroom 2.5, letting you snap and edit DNG photos using app's built-in camera. It also supports the iPhone 7's P3 "wide color," which will add 25 percent more hues than with the iPhone 6S.
With large file sizes and post-processing often needed, RAW isn't for everyone, but Adobe's Lightroom 2.5 is targeted at pros or others who want to get more out of an image. Once a DNG photo is snapped, you can use the app to bring back "blown out" highlights that would normally be lost with a JPEG (above), or recover detail from deep blacks. With no JPEG artifact compression, images will be sharper, too. If you'd rather work on the desktop, you can sync up DNG files with the Lightroom CC via iCloud.
The app is now available for free on iTunes, but as mentioned, DNG is only supported on devices with the 12-megapixel camera (sorry, iPhone 6 owners). The iPhone 7 will start shipping in a few days, but Adobe says that it's "working to profile the new sensors and lenses found in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus and will have an update available as soon as possible."
