Apple ProRAW: these are the benefits

Your iPhone takes great photos, of course, especially if you have a recent device. Those who seriously want to get started with smartphone photography would do well to use the RAW format. With a little patience and creativity you can get the most out of your camera.

Apple ProRAW, one of the major new features in iOS 14.3, goes a step further. If you have an iPhone 12 Pro or iPhone 12 Pro Max, you can now shoot in this new file format. Your photos are therefore even better to edit than before. In this article, we’ll tell you all about the benefits of Apple ProRAW.

What is RAW?

When you take a photo with your iPhone, it will be saved as a HEIC file by default. Just like the well-known JPEG, this is a file format that compresses your photos, so that they take up less space. In many cases, that’s nice, because you can store more photos on your iPhone. You can also send them faster or upload them to Instagram, for example.

However, a lot of information is lost from the file when compressing. As a result, you see a quick loss of quality if you want to edit the photos. A RAW file does contain all the information, so you get a much nicer end result, provided you take the trouble to adjust the photo to your taste. An unedited RAW file is often dark and unattractive, as you can see in the example below.
