As photos take up most iPhone storage, Apple adopted HEIC format as iPhone photo storage format since iOS 11. Though several years have passed, HEIC photos still bring incompatibility issues on some platforms. This article helps with how to convert HEIC to JPG on different platforms and devices. 

Part 1. How to Convert HEIC to JPG on Windows

If you are using a Windows PC and an iPhone, there is a huge gap for you to cross. If you want to edit a HEIC image with your PC further, your photo editor software may not open HEIC directly. You need to convert this HEIC photo to JPG, which is well supported on almost all platforms. You can use online and desktop tools to convert HEIC to JPG. 

Method 1. Convert HEIC to JPG Using Windows Application

There are many third-party applications that can convert HEIC photos to JPG. Though you need to install them on your PC, converting HEIC photos to JPG with desktop applications is fast and stable. EaseUS MobiMover is one of the good HEIC converters on the market. It can convert single or multiple photos from HEIC to JPG. Find out how it works in the steps below.
