  • 25 June 2024 It's Lightroom update time again! See What’s New in Lightroom Classic 13.4, Mobile & Desktop (June 2024)? for the bug fixes and new lens profiles. Warning... this is a minor dot release and does NOT fix some of the bugs introduced in 13.3, so if you reverted to 13.2 due to bugs (e.g. sync issues), we'd suggest you stay there for now.

Using a new iPhone Pro 12 max, with LR on iPhone and LR Classic on Mac. I definitely have that toggle on iPhone set to DNG. When I got back home and looked at my Mac, I see that some of the images are jpg, some are HEIC and some are DNG. I did *not* touch the toggle on iPhone. Any idea what's going on... I want to shoot everything in RAW (DNG). Thanks-
Just figured this out! I inadvertently had "auto import" set, so LR was pulling in images from iPhone camera roll as well as what I was shooting in LR mobile. I could swear I had that turned off previously, but maybe in move to new iPhone it turned back on...
We appreciate you posting the solution you found too, could well help others!
