When the most popular camera in the world gets a major update, it's a newsworthy event all around. We've put the 12MP iPhone 7 in front of our studio test scene to see what it (and its new Raw capture abilities) can do.

We've put the 12MP iPhone 7 and its bigger dual-cam sibling in front of our studio test scene to see what they (and their Raw capture abilities) can do.
