Re: Problem in opening iPhone .heic photos

If you search the web for *.heic, you'll see plenty of links. Here are some examples of what to do, including settings in your phone to avoid it in the first place.

If you do not want iOS to save images in the HEIF format, open your "Settings" app, and select Camera → Formats → Most Compatible. Selecting Most Compatible means that iOS will now save images in the JPEG format.

HEIC is the new file type for photos in iOS 11. That's for iPhones and iPads with an A9 processor or newer, so iPhone 6S, 6S Plus, iPad Pro models and the recent 2017 iPad 9.7.

 

HEIC is another name for HEIF, which is short for High Efficiency Image Format. It’s the still image version of HEVC, which is the latest video codec.

You will never be able to open these photos on Windows laptop , because your laptop won't let you do that .
