How to Shoot and Edit RAW Photos in iOS 10 on iPhone and iPad

If you want to capture pro-level shots using your iPhone or iPad running iOS 10, get started with RAW.

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. But still, they are no match to the pro-level shots. What if you want to capture a shot, which even a professional photographer would be proud of, using your iPhone or iPad powered by iOS 10?

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.
