    I think it is only possible to do this through third party apps because of a new API with iOS 10. Apps using iOS 10 APIs won't be released until after the public version of iOS 10 is released this fall.

    So third parties have to wait for a general release to get their apps ready for this? I sort of though that was the whole point of betas.

    No, developers have the API access to build it into their apps, but end users like us won't be able to use the feature until the general release when third party apps are allowed to push out their updates. The only way to get early access is through an app's beta through TestFlight if they're running a beta period, as some developers tend to do that.

    What a shame! Got to wait till September / the next iPhone to get that killer feature.

    Almost makes me not want to take any photos till iOS 10

    Is Apple doing it already - eg through importing RAW/ RAW+JPG pairs via Lightning to USB adapter to Card reader? Eg iPad Pro 9.7" on 9.3.2 can import a RAW from a 5DMII

    You can import raw.
    You can't edit or shoot. Yet.

    Is this really going to make that much difference in your life that you would stop using the camera on your phone for 2+ months? Sounds a little dramatic.

    I wish this could come to iOS. Shooting in RAW has huge benefits over JPG.

    Of course the great addition of shooting raw format begs the question......where are all the great extensions like you can find for MacOS Photos? So far i have not seen any indication that Macphun and the rest of the makers are going to port their extensions to IOS. I hope that changes.
