To reduce space on the phone, Apple changed the default camera formats for photographs and videos from JPG to HEIC (High-Efficiency Image Format) with iOS 11. Now, this may be an old adjustment, but if you try to send your iPhone photographs and videos to your laptop, you’ll find that it won’t open them since they’re in the HEIC format, which isn’t generally accepted.
Although HEIC stores quality photos in lesser files size than JPG, converting HEIC images to JPG can be tedious. Furthermore, in the camera app, Apple does not provide a way to adjust the default settings. To change formats, you’ll need to go to Settings. Here’s how to do it.
- On your iPhone, go to Settings.
- Toggle the camera. Formats, Grid, Preserve Settings, and Camera Mode are among the options available.
- Change the format from High Efficiency to Most Compatible by tapping Formats.
- All of your photographs will now be saved as JPGs instead of HEICs.

However, the photos you’ve already taken will be saved in HEIC format, and only the new shots you take will be saved as JPG.
