How to take RAW photos on iPhone

If you aren’t already, you should be taking RAW photos on iPhone. RAW files are essentially totally or mostly uncompressed images. In short, they’re exactly what your camera’s sensor saw and contain all of the image data your camera originally captured (this gets lost with compression). 

Your iPhone takes images and saves them as HEIC files by default, although some people choose to change their iPhone’s default photo format to JPEG. Both of these file types are compressed, meaning some of the image data is lost and potentially irreversible filters or parameters (like added contrast) have been applied.
