Mine is an iPhone SE, same camera as the 6s but much smaller build, like 
the iPhone 5.  To accomplish that, in a rare flash of good sense IMHO, 
Apple chose to make the front (selfie) camera much lower resolution.  I 
downloaded Lightroom Mobile, but could not find a way to use dng.  
Somewhere in the back pages, Apple states that you must first upgrade to 
iOS 10.  I did that and gained the ability to use dng (the camera app 
now gives a choice between jpg and dng).  As an aside, the FBI Special 
Agent in charge of cyber crime here gave a presentation to our firm, 
where he urged upgrading to the latest iOS because of serious security 
issues (that is all I know about software engineering.)  I still have 
not worked my way through syncing LR Mobile and LR Desktop. All I know 
is that after upgrading to iOS 10, a collection of synced photos has 
appeared on LR Desktop.  I have not been able to determine if these are 
source images or if those are still on the phone.  May the Schwartz be 
with you.
