Hi @Mattvenum welcome to the forums,

It's likely that you are opening the RAW in Apple Photo's by Right clicking the image and selecting 'Edit in Affinity Photo', this will open the RAW as TIFF in the Photo Persona with no Camera data. This issue is currently logged with the development team for resolution.

If you were to open the Photo By clicking into the image from Apple Photos > Select Edit > Select Ellipses > Edit in Affinity Photo this will correctly open the image in the Develop persona with EXIF Camera data preserved, however this workflow is also prone to a separate issue which prevents the image from correctly passing the edits back to Apple Photos, so it may be best to avoid using the Edit in Affinity functions in the Apple Photos app.
