iPhone switched its default camera format for photos and videos with the release of its iOS 11, changing it from JPG to HEIC. The major reason why Apple made this little change was to save up some space on your device.
HEIC saves quality photos in smaller sizes as compared to JPG, this is good but transferring photos and videos from your iOS device to your laptop is a waste of time because you won’t be able to view the files, they’re not in a format that laptops support.
