Everyone knows how strongly guarded Apple’s garden is, with the new image format for iOS 11, HEIC or HEIF (High-Efficiency Image Compression or Image File) not supported on Windows or Android devices, which is a tremendous loss for users on these devices.
And to further compound the woes of users on both Windows and Android, there are currently no native converter for HEIC Files, which may perhaps take many more years, if ever there will be a native support for it; but at present, there are some few options available for users of the unsupported devices.
While there are numerous software tools that can convert HEIC files into the regular .jpg and .png formats, HEIC File Converter for Windows is one software that is completely free and that enable users to convert HEIC photos to jpg/png/pdf in just 3 steps.
