Apple used iOS 11 to change the default camera format for photos and videos from JPG to HEIC (High Efficiency Image Format) to save space on the phone. Now, this may be an old change, but once you share iPhone photos and videos to your laptop, you will realize that it cannot be opened because it is an HEIC format, but it is not the most widely supported.

Although HEIC can save high-quality photos in smaller sizes compared to JPG, it can be annoying to convert HEIC images to JPG. In addition, Apple does not provide an option to change the default settings in the camera app. You will have to go to “Settings” to switch formats. This is how to do it.

  1. go with Set value On your iPhone.
  2. Tap camera. You will see some options such as format, grid, retention settings and camera mode.
  3. Tap format, And change the format from “Efficient” to “Most Compatible”.
  4. Now, all your photos will be automatically saved as JPG instead of HEIC.

However, it should be noted that the photos you have clicked will remain in HEIC format, and only the new image you clicked will be saved as JPG.
