    Well as you know, iOS 10 will allow the camera to shoot in RAW format which is very cool. Im thinking to get 32gb iPhone 7 Plus but I don't think that I can shoot more than 3~400 pics due to app sizes. I don't use Cloud system cause it's too complicate to transfer everything and then delete. Any recommended apps or solution for more space to take RAW images?

    Dropbox, or Google photos maybe..... Problem is they change quality when uploading. Google photos has a setting that allows unlimited space of you allow the app to reduce the IMG quality, but that defeats your purpose. It has a setting for full quality but I can't recall the Gig amount they give you.

    I don't think that's confirmed, is it? It would be totally unApple.

    Huh? iCloud Photos is probably the simplest, and certainly the most integrated photo management solution on the iPhone. And you can set it to Optimize Storage, which saves space automatically.

    It already showed during WWDC 2016

    Not for me. I've been shooting pics for several years and I have over 8000 pics which is 32gb. iCloud has small storage and not even comfortable. That's the biggest minus for me.

    The presentation backdrop said "Raw photo editing". It didn't say the user would have access to raws from the iPhone camera.

    50 GB of iCloud storage is $12 per year.

    Without accessing raw files, how will you even able to edit raw files? Also, Photos already support RAW files. They don't need to make another raw photo editing app. Without taking raw photos, raw photo editing is impossible.

    Still not that reliable and very complicate to transfer all files to HDD. No thanks.

    Google photos:

    - unlimited storage
    - has a "free up space" feature that will delete photos off your phone if they have been uploaded already.
    - Pretty simple to use.

    Dropbox does not mess with your image quality does it?

    At reduced resolution, unless you want to pay.

    Yes, the commercial is on every ten minutes during the Olympics. They're obviously mocking the iPhone, but from pre iOS 9 days, which is hilariously stupid. iPhones don't run out of space for new photos if you have iCloud Photos with optimize storage on. And it's much smarter than simply deleting photos from your phone.
