I do not have LR Mobile on my phone as yet. I take very few photos with my phone, only snapshots to share with friends or family, so I use Apple Photos. But this fall I will do some extensive travel where I must pack VERY light, and I won't have my laptop which has LR Classic. I will use my Canon G11 to take RAW images and would like to use the phone as backup storage in case I lose/damage an SD card. I'm afraid that direct import into the phone will convert the RAW files to JPGs in Photos, so I want to know whether LR Mobile will allow me to store the photos on the phone in Files instead. I have been reading about the 20GB cloud limit, which would be a problem. Any suggestions about how to back up my RAW images?
 
Raw photos should not be converted by Apple Photos either, but Lightroom mobile does indeed import them. They won’t end up in Files however, but in Lightroom.

I travel with a 1TB iPadPro. I import my camera photos into Lightroom using a Card reader. These end up in the Lightroom Storage area of the iPadPro. These sync to my 1TB Adobe Cloud storage plan when I get a reasonably fast internet connection. I have also copied the camera card to the Files storage area go my iPadPro using the same card reader. As an alternate backup to the iPad/iPhone storage, I have a portable HDD/Battery backup that I can copy the files from the iPad/iPhone storage to the portable HDD/Battery backup. Additionally I have a 256GB camera card that holds lots of 48mp Nikon RAW files without needing to reformat the camera card. With the portable HDD/Battery backup and the iPadPro and the Camera card, I can have three copies of my travel images while I travel. If I am able to sync Lightroom to the Adobe Cloud while I travel, I have an additional copy in the Adobe Cloud AND sync'd to LrC running on my iMac back home.

That's good news about a LR storage area. I haven't yet bought a card reader for the phone but once I get it, I will do some testing to be sure. If I didn't need to keep my pack weight under 10 pounds, I would use my laptop and a portable HD too.
Thank you both.

Be sure to get one that supports both a Lightning and a USB-C connection. I would guess that the next iPhone will be USB-C like the newer iPads. The Lightning ports are pretty much obsolete everywhere and only are found in iPhones 14 and older.

Good point. I do already have one with the USB-C connection for my MacBook Pro and iMac, so if the Lightning one turns out to be obsolete, I will still have that.

Just buy a Lightning to USB-C adapter for the one you have
