I am able to switch between Wide and Telephoto on iPhone 11 Pro Max with no issue. Support for switching to the UltraWide lens will be coming in an update. 

Make sure you are using Lightroom Mobile 4.4.1 and iOS 13.1.3

Hi Rikk,

How come it says it works in the App Store?

Thanks,
John

It seems the Lightroom app allows lens switching in the professional and auto modes, but is disabled when in HDR mode. Bummer.

Ah, since I usually leave it in HDR I didn’t realize or even consider looking at the other modes. Thanks for letting me know.

Thanks for the update Rikk. Looking forward to using the UltraWide lens in the future. In particular, the HDR functionality with UltraWide will be great for landscapes. Since there isn’t a Night Mode with the UltraWide, the long exposure mode will also be invaluable.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Latest update doesn’t have UWA lens on iOS.

When will LR Mobile utilize the UWA lens in the iPhone 11 Pro Max?

Interesting... I wonder why the file format would be a problem?

Because the device manufactures decides what level of access they grant for 3rd party apps. And raw support is not on the basic level, sadly a lot of just don't care for stuff like this. On Android it would need Camera API 2 access.
