It’s a terrible feeling to delete unnecessary photos to free up a few megabytes of space on your phone so you can take the photo you want. As you know in iPhone set, the new images you clicked will take high megabytes size and drained the storage. Using the iPhone’s HDR function, the size of these photos can range from 1.5MB to 4MB or even larger. Apple always gives importance to the quality of iPhone cameras, although the photos are clear and sharp. Let’s talk about the easy way to save iPhone photos in JPG format.
Apple changed the default camera format of photos and videos from JPG to HEIC (High-Efficiency Image Format) from iOS 11 to save space on the phone. This may be an old change, but once you share iPhone photos and videos on your laptop, you will no longer be able to open them in HEIC format, which is not the most widely supported.
HEIC saves high-quality photos in smaller size as compared to JPG, converting HEIC images to JPG can be annoying. In addition, Apple doesn’t provide an option to change the default settings in the camera app. You need to enter the settings to change the format.
Here are Easy Way to Save iPhone Photos in JPG Format
- 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.
However, make sure that the photos you have clicked will remain in HEIC format, and only the new image you clicked will be saved in JPG format.
