  • After importing the photos, you will see a pop-up menu asking if you want to Delete the photos from your SD card or Keep them.
  • Choose the option you want and then disconnect the SD card adapter.

Import RAW or JPG images through USB adapter

You can import the RAW images to your iPhone even with the USB adapter. Here is how you can do so:

  • Start your camera and connect the cable and plug it to the USB adapter.
  • After connecting it with your iPhone, the Photos app will automatically open. If not so, open the Photos app.
  • Click on the Import tab.
  • If you want to Import All the images from the camera, you can click on Import All. Otherwise select the photos you want to import.

You can follow this process to connect any USB connected camera with your iOS device.

Edit RAW images on your iPhone or iPad

You can download any RAW photo editing app on your iPhone like Adobe’s Lightroom Mobile. Moreover, you can even edit your photos directly in the Photos app. However, before that, you will have to duplicate the files so that you can edit them in any third-party app. For editing the photos, you need to open the editing option in any editing app and after editing you can save them in any format you want. If you are editing in the Photos app, remember that the photo will be directly saved into JPG format.

Sync RAW images to Mac using iCloud Photo Library

You can sync your RAW files to the iCloud Photo Library. With the new update, your files will not be converted into JPG format before syncing. So you don’t have to worry about losing the quality of the image while syncing. Thus, you can easily import the RAW images on your iPhone and they will be synced to your Mac as RAW files.

Conclusion

With new updates in the iPhone, you can now import the RAW images from your professional camera to the iOS device. You can import the files either by using an SD card adapter or USB adapter. Moreover, you can even edit these RAW images on your images by using the Photos app or any third-party RAW image editing app. Although, if you use the Photos app to edit your pictures, they will be directly saved in JPG format. Whereas, in other editing apps, you can select the format you want to save the photos in. Also, you can sync your RAW images in the same format in the iCloud Photo Library. While syncing the file will not be compressed, so you don’t have to worry about losing the quality of the photo.
