Undoubtedly, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have got the best camera. With the dual-camera system, the 5.5-inch iPhone has taken the mobile photography to the next level.

iOS 10 allows you to shoot RAW photos. This new tool works by disabling the built-in ISP (Image Signal Processor) of iPhone and enabling you to have better control over editing the color, light, and imagery of the shots. As a result, your photos look awesome.

To shoot RAW photos, you need third party apps which support it. There are several highly awesome manual camera apps like Obscura Camera, ProCamera, Camera+, Manual, and more. Want to take some of the finest RAW photos? Let's go!
