Apple’s iPhone saves photos in the HEIC/F format on its internal space when clicked by its camera lens by default. You cannot choose the format settings with which it clicks the photo on the iPhone.
While the HEIC formatted images can easily be accessed and opened by any other Apple device like iPhone, iPad, or Mac but these images in HEIC format cannot be opened or viewed on any other platforms like Windows, Android, etc.
Hence, the only possible way is by converting the HEIC format image into JPEG so that these images can be shared with others who are using non-Apple devices.
If you are eager to know how you can convert HEIC into JPEG format on your iPhone, this article is going to help you greatly.
