How to Save Images on iPhone in JPG Format?
In order to save storage on your tablet, Apple switched its default camera formats from JPG to HEIC (High Efficiency Image Format) with iOS 11. Now, this may be an old update, but if you post your iPhone pictures and videos on your desktop, you will know it can’t open them because the HEIC format isn’t commonly supported.
Though HEIC saves quality photos in smaller sizes than JPG, converting HEIC images to JPG is irritating. In addition, Apple does not give you the option of changing the default camera app setting. You must go to Settings to change formats. Here’s how.
- Go to Settings on your iPhone.
- Tap Camera. You will be shown some options like Formats, Grid, Preserve Settings, and Camera Mode.
- Tap Formats, and change the format from High Efficiency to Most Compatible.
- Now all your photos will be automatically saved as JPG instead of HEIC.
It is important to remember, however, that the photos you have already clicked stay in the HEIC format and only the new images you select are saved as JPG.
