How To Convert iPhone Photos Back to JPG Format [UPDATE]

If you find that the default file format for your iPhone photos is HEIC and you want JPG instead, you can change it like this.[UPDATE]

From Wikipedia: “The High Efficiency Image File Format (HEIF) is a container format for individual images and image series. HEIF image files are usually saved with the filename extensions #heif or #heic. ” [or #HEIC]. It was introduced by Apple in iOS 11.

iOS 13.x has not changed the technology since I wrote my original article on April 3, 2019. As a reminder, I explained:

  • Switch between HEIC and JPG file formats for your photos.
  • Why your screenshots are always in PNG format.
  • Why the JPG photo format results in videos recorded in 1080p / 60 fps. It would certainly be nice to allow both JPG and a standard of 4K / UHD / 60fps, but Apple hasn’t considered it necessary to separate photo and video preferences just yet.
  • How to Convert HEIC Photos to JPG. I have also found this recent article be well written and useful.
  • Read more (good) on why HEIC exists.
  • Windows 10 supports HEIF, but there is a lot of momentum on the JPG side. In the past two years, I have not seen any evidence of a radical and widespread change in HEIF / HEIC, except perhaps for some professional photographers. Finally, early 2019, Google Android pie began to provide support to HEIC.
