Apple has changed its default camera format for photographs and recordings from JPG to HEIC (High-Efficiency Image Format) with iOS 11 to save space on the mobile phone. Presently, this may be an old change, yet once you share your iPhone pictures and recordings to your PC or laptop, you’ll understand that it can’t open them since it is in the HEIC format and it gets frustrating sometimes when you want to transfer your pictures through mail or upload your photographs for some registration.
Even though HEIC saves quality photographs in more modest sizes when compared with JPG, it very well may be irritating to change over HEIC pictures to JPG. Besides, Apple doesn’t give a choice to change the default setting in the camera application. You should go to Settings to switch the format. Here’s the secret.
Step 1: Open Settings App in iPhone
Step 2: Click on Camera, Tap on the first open “FORMAT”
Step 3: Now change the settings from High efficiency to Most Compatible
Done!! Now all your images clicked will be saved automatically in JPG format and you don’t have to worry about converting them. But please note this change in settings will not be applied to your past pictures they will still be in HIEC format, only the new pictures you will click now on will be in JPGE format
