I've used both the Moment app and Halide to shoot in RAW. The files are saved as DNG. Note however that RAW on the new Xs iPhones is problematic. In Moment they are basically unusable as they are terribly overexposed. Halide has a new version out in which they've done some work to alleviate that, but I've not found them to be very useful, particularly low-light images.If so, does anyone know how to set it to shoot in this format?
Adobe Lightroom Mobile has a very good RAW camera built in and shows highlight clipping, very useful when shooting RAW. It’s free, but to save RAW edits in LRM you have to have a CC subscription. You can however, export the .dng RAW file and edit it in another image editor.

The overexposed Xs series RAW files have been noted by the Halide folks and they’ve recently updated their app. This article on Luminous Landscape emphasizes the necessity of being able to see highlight clipping and adjust the exposure accordingly. This article may be paywalled, but if you can read it, read it through without leaving the page.
TL;DR, CameraPro, Lightroom Mobile, and RAW+ Apps have highlight clipping features. I have not used CameraPro yet, but I have tried RAW+ and it does not save images for me and this is noted in some reviews, however the app is free for the first 100 shots so you can certainly try it out. Lightroom’s camera works well for showing the highlight clipping.

That’s correct on LR. You have to save the edits as jpeg unless you have cc subscription.
Oppsss. Sorry. . Saw “AZ” in your screen name and “Fountain city”. The town in Arizona is actually “Fountain Hills”. Time for my second cup of coffee (its morning time here now).
I actually seldom use my phone for photos anymore. Sometimes a little “digi-snap” here and there but that’s about it. For me, cell phones just aren’t there yet, but can certainly make some very acceptable photos for many people and certainly fine often for social media post.
I’ve been photographing for ca 55 years and am just using one of my cameras these days.
