Many of us are familiar with JPG as it is a common image format. But along with the release of the new Apple’s iOS 11, HEIC becomes the image format that is being talked about across the web. HEIC is used by Apple on iOS devices in order to solve the problem of huge image size eating up your iOS devices’ memory. However, it’s not a popular image format yet, and it would be difficult for you to view HEIC images on Windows or other mobile devices since there are few apps allowing you to open or view it directly. Therefore, one of your best choices is to convert HEIC to JPG. Here are some of the notable programs that you can rely on.
