RAW Photos format limitations on the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro
- The standard Camera app on the iPhone does not support RAW format, so we will use the third-party paid Halide app.

- RAW photos can only be taken on the primary 12 megapixel lens, but not on the rest.
How to shoot in RAW format on iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro
Step 1: Launch the Halide app and give it access to the camera of your iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro.
Step 2: Swipe up the arrow on the toolbar above the shoot button. Useful options will open, and there will also be a RAW icon. Select it to save photos in RAW / DNG format.
