If you have an iPhone and a Windows PC, you may have come across times when you can’t view your photos on your computer. That’s because Apple uses a different format to save photos, called HEIC (High Efficiency Image Container). This format makes the file size of your photo much smaller than JPGs while still keeping the quality of the image. It can be frustrating if your Windows PC can’t open this format, but there are a few easy fixes. This app downloaded from the Microsoft Store will allow you to open HEIC files, or if you want to actually convert the images to JPG you can do so one at a time with an online converter like this one. Finally, you can install software like this one that can both view and covert HEIC files to JPG.
