Hi everyone, I've noticed a very high noise when shooting with my iPhone directly from the Lighroom app. With the prevoius model of iPhone that level of noise wasn't there and I'm wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same issue. 

Disclaimer: I am not trying to compare the dng with the jpeg file created by the iPhone itself.
At the bottom you'll find a link with the original dng. Thanks for helping.

I agree. even at low ISO noise-leves in RAW/DNG are quite extreme when camera is used to shoot in low-light conditions. In LR mobile it can be corrected to some extend without distroying the structures and detail to much. the problem seems that the iPhone is not really predictable in what it does in critical conditions.

Thank you Christian. 
In my cases the extreme noise is visible even when in daylight meaning that I don't need critical conditions to notice that.

Unfortunately I am not able to download this sample file from this provider. Can you post on Dropbox, Creative Cloud, or Onedrive?

Thanks Rick CC - I guess you are my security bypass?

At 100% I am not seeing much of an issue on my end with this file. I reset it to zeroed edits and used modest sharpening and noise reduction and the noise disappeared at 100% on a 4K monitor.  A screenshot of an area for us to focus on with the noise highlighted might help.

Thank you Rikk, here's the link to the screenshot https://adobe.ly/2VpPTZU
Probably it is just me expecting less noise I don't know but thank you for having a look there.

I took a look but I am really not seeing what it is you are speaking of. It looks very comparable to what I see from my iPhone.

The dng generated by LR mobile seems a little more noisy than I expected. Again, it is probably just me or our iPhones. Thank you.
