Apple company switched its default camera formats for photos and videos from JPG to HEIC (High-Efficiency Image Format) with iOS 11 to save space around the phone. Now, this might end up being an old change, but when you share your iPhone photos and videos to your laptop, you’ll find out that it can’t open all of them because it is in the HEIC format, which isn’t most broadly supported.

Even though HEIC saves quality pictures in smaller sizes in comparison with JPG, it can be annoying to convert HEIC images in order to JPG. Moreover, Apple does not give an option to change the default setting in the camera app. You will have to go to Settings to switch formats. Here’s just how.

  1. Go to Settings in your iPhone.
  2. Tap Camera . You will be shown some options like Types, Grid, Preserve Settings, and Camera Mode.
  3. Tap Formats , and change the format from High Efficiency to Most Compatible.
  4. Now all of your photos will be automatically ended up saving as JPG instead of HEIC.

However it should be noted that the pictures that you’ve already clicked will remain in the HEIC format, in support of the new images that you click on will be saved as JPG.
