Apple iPhones save photos in the HEIF format i.e, a high-efficiency image file. Though it is similar to the more popular JPG, if you need to use the photo on a website, open it on your PC, or share it with someone who doesn't have an iPhone, you will need a JPEG file. If you're wondering how to do it, you can do it at ease or make your camera automatically save new photos as JPG instead of HEIF with some simple and easy steps. There are so many third-party apps that offer conversions, but they may contain ads or require payments to unlock special features, but you can do it this way easily. Here's a step-by-step guide to do so.
