  • These are great... but since I don't have an iPhone X, do they have any tips for people with iPhone 8 or 8 plus?
  • I believe all of these also apply to the iPhone 8/8 Plus, and earlier iPhones to be honest
  • It's about time Apple started making their camera app inline with other camera apps, so being able to take RAW photos, and being able to access camera settings inside the camera app, rather than having to go into settings.
