Adobe has updated its Lightroom app for iOS to take advantage of the enhanced cameras on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

The latest version of Lightroom for iPhone, v2.5.2, brings specific lens and sensor profiles for both of Apple's new devices, featuring specific dual-lens optimizations for the 5.5-inch handset.

The update also brings improved color, noise, and lens profiles for Adobe's digital negative (DNG) image format when used in conjunction with the iPhone 7 series, allowing photographers to edit images while avoiding the bugbear of visible distortions typically brought about by lossy data compression.

In addition to support for Adobe's RAW file format, the new iteration of Lightroom supports the DCI-P3 wide color gamut display featured in iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, and first seen in the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. The improved standard offers 25 percent more color than sRGB.

The latest update builds on Adobe's last, version 2.5, which brought RAW shooting capability to owners of Apple devices equipped with a 12-megapixel camera, including the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, 9.7-inch iPad Pro, and iPhone SE.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for iPhone is a free download for iPhone and iPad on the App Store. [Direct Link]

Doesn't matter. Lightroom is also an app you can get for the Mac btw, in case you didn't know...
Sure, I understand that. I meant the iPad Pro reference obviously relates to iOS devices, since the OP is in context of an iOS app update.

I'm hoping they tweak the UI for capturing images though. Still is not as good as some other apps and Apple's own. My wish list is for two rectiles (one for focus and one for exposure) and an exposure slider that is faster to use.

The post processing in the LR app is very good though with the DNG. I do hope Apple adds some more support for DNG in the near future though as far as quick labeling, etc.

So excited to be able to use the raw image finally though. That was one of the biggest suprises at the event. All the suprises are software since they can't keep hardware leaks under wrap!

FYI Lightroom holds the DNG photos in its own library and does not allow saving them to the camera role, to sync them to a computer you need a subscription (around £10 per month).

ProCam is a much better choice, stays ahead of the curve in terms of features, the only app to embed a full res preview to the DNG, saves to camera roll for free access via other apps. Certainly the best choice of raw shooting app.

There's also other (not as good choice) such as Manual app.
Although I really like the editing capabilities of Lightroom mobile (I have used. the desktop version for a long time). The decision that I can't export it as a DNG or lossless file is very annoying.
