If you’re serious about photography then you’ll be aware of the benefits of shooting in RAW. Using this unfiltered image format certainly makes for a slower workflow, but that’s more than compensated by the greater control and versatility when it comes to editing things like white balance. Apple added system-wide support for the format in iOS 10, and popular photography app VSCO is taking advantage of this, letting users shoot, import, and edit in RAW in the latest version of the app.

Shooting in RAW gives you more control over photo-editing.

You’ll need an iPhone SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, or 7 Plus to take advantage, but that’s all. “With RAW, you’re able to recover lost highlight detail,” says VSCO, “freely adjust color balance, and bring out the full potential of RAW images from both your iPhone and DSLR camera.” If you want to take advantage of RAW on Android phones, check out Google’s Snapseed or the Lightroom app, both of which also support the image format.
