Description JPG is a commonly used method of lossy compression for digital images, particularly for those images produced by digital photography. The degree of compression can be adjusted, allowing a selectable tradeoff between storage size and image quality. JPG typically achieves 10:1 compression with little perceptible loss in image quality. HEIC is the new standard image format introduced by Apple with its 2017 update from iOS 10 to iOS 11. It is also known under the acronym of HEIF which stands for High Efficiency Image Format. The HEIC format was developed by MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group) which are otherwise known for video and audio formats such as MP3 or MP4. Being the new default or standard image format for iOS 11 devices, HEIC was designed to replace the JPG format. It's smaller in size with comparable quality while also supporting transparency. Furthermore, HEIC files can contain several images which fits Apple's "Live Photo" functionality. Furthermore, it stores information about image editing like rotation and cropping which enables the user to revert the changes later on.
Technical details Image files that employ JPG compression are commonly called "JPG files", and are stored in variants of the JIF image format. Most image capture devices (such as digital cameras) that output JPG are actually creating files in the Exif format, the format that the camera industry has standardized on for metadata interchange. The lossy compressed HEIC format is based on HEVC (High Efficiency Video Compression), which was also developed by MPEG. Together with transparency and the ability to store more than one image, HEIC files can also contain 16-bit colors, whereas JPG files can only support 8-bit. HEIC files still have some compatibility issues, even though they are already posted and saved to social media or cloud storage as JPG images since they are automatically converted. Third-party apps or computer programs can still have difficulties interpreting HEIC files though. Luckily, you can disable saving images as HEIC on a iOS 11 device by going to Settings > Camera > Formats > Most Compatible, which will force iOS 11 to save images in the JPEG format.
