JPG files are introduced in 1992 to store digital images with a method of lossy compression. It is the most widely used digital image format around the world. On Android and iPhone (before iOS 11), photos are saved as JPG files.
Why are your photos saved as HEIC files instead of JPG files? Apple announces that pictures taken by iPhone camera would be saved as HEIC files after iOS 11 because HEIC files save the same high-quality images but take less storage.
Both HEIC images and JPG/JPEG images can be viewed on iPhone without efforts yet HEIC files are not supported in Windows system.
Your raw photos might need to be edited in Photoshop or other software but even the popular photo editing software can’t open HEIC files.
HEIC photos exported from iPhone could be easily copied from PC to the internal storage of Android, but they cannot be viewed or edit.
You may get recognize error when uploading HEIC format images to clouds since it cannot be recognized by some websites and cloud drives.
