During the setup of iOS 11, HEIF/HEIC is enabled as your picture format by default. This caused incompatibility issues for a wide number of iPhone X users while viewing these HEIF/HEIC photos on non-iOS devices. To be able to solve the issue, you need to change iPhone X HEIF/HEIC to JPG format prior. This article explain how to do this in simple steps.
JPEG was created in 1992 and HEIF was finalized in the summer of 2015. Those 23 years make a significant difference. HEIF, also known as HEIC, offers superior image quality, and smaller file size. The first major company to support the new HEIF/HEIC format is Apple with its latest devices and Mac operating system. Neither Android nor Windows support it. In order to view iPhone X HEIF/HEIC photos on all devices or programs, you will need to convert iPhone X HEIF/HEIC files to JPG format first. This requires a useful iPhone X HEIF/HEIC converter. Check out a simple guide on how to convert iPhone X HEIF/HEIC photos to JPG via using such a converter app.
