Before digging into the solutions to open and view HEIC files on your computer, let's start this guide with a couple of questions about HEIC to JPG, which can help you better understand the solutions presented below. If you already know the answers to these questions or have no interest in them, you can directly navigate to the next part to learn how to change HEIC files to JPG on your computer.

Q1: What is a HEIC file, and why does my iPhone take HEICs photos instead of JPG?

HEIC, short for High Efficiency Image Container, is Apple's new photo format with iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra in 2017. This format occupies less storage space but provides higher photo quality than JPG. Initially, this format only works on Apple devices, but later Google and Microsoft announce support for HEIC.

Q2: HEIC vs JPEG: What's the difference?

HEIC is superior to JPG in terms of photo quality and storage space it takes up. HEIC takes up less storage space with an equivalent photo quality than JPG. But the use of the HEIC format is more narrow than the JPG. 

Q3: What to do to convert the HEIC file to JPG? 

Apple doesn't offer the option to convert HEIC files to JPG itself. But you can convert HEIC files to JPG in some indirect ways, such as pasting your HEIC photos on email and send them to yourself or using cloud services to convert HEIC photos, or installing a third-party converter to get the job done, etc. All of these methods will be displayed in the following instructions.
