Apple is bringing RAW photo editing to iOS 10


It turns out Apple snuck a big photography announcement into the background of the WWDC presentation yesterday: RAW photo editing is coming to iOS 10.

The feature was hidden in the background among the many other listed improvements for developers in the next version of iOS, but since Apple didn’t call it out by name during the presentation, it went largely unnoticed.

This is a big deal to professional shooters and anyone who shoots in RAW but edits on their iOS device. It will also bring a lot of changes to apps in iOS that allow you to edit photos. And it means that, undoubtedly, RAW capture will be available in the next version of the iPhone and iPad.
