This is how Aperture and Capture One and other image capture programs work. I can make as many different versions from 1 photo as I like... but there is only 1 honking big file. The rest is small text files that are the "interpretation" for the other versions.
When I make adjustments to a RAW file... it doesn't actually do anything to the RAW file. It "applies" the adjustments as a side car. The adjustments are just a set of instructions for the program on how to now "see" the Raw. It's like a set of glasses. You can have 20 pairs of glasses to see the world and they all fit in a little box. As opposed to there actually being 20 different worlds.
if you are saying that the compared version is only 4 or 6K whatever how you can make a comparison.
Because I know what I'm talking about and I do this stuff for a living maybe? You had a theory that it was saving three photos, I tried to explain how it wasn't, but you can't accept it. You're so thick headed. NG4 explained the same thing in another way, hope you -----> Get it now.
Are you saying it's fibbing and there's really only the one file and a second, smaller text only file?
That's the way Aperture, Version Cue, etc do it. I'd be surprised if they didn't use the same principle for the iPhone.
To test the theory for sure, take a bunch of photos, let it generate 2 HDRs for each, then go to General/Settings/About and see how much disk space is left. Then go to your pics and delete all the HDR files but keep the originals and see if the disk space changes.

Or, alternatively, you could just copy the files over to your Mac and see what the Finder thinks the file sizes are ;-)
I would assume if that second file is really just a 4k text file and not a 2.1MB jpg file it would say so, no? If the Finder thinks it takes up 2.1MB space then it's kind of moot if it's actually only 4k since the Finder is what's going to determine how full your disk is in any practical sense ...
