IOS 11 will save you storage with new image and video formats


At the World Wide Developer Conference, or better known as WWDC, Apple introduced its new mobile operating system already (click here to see all news) with it, certain improvements in different aspects. One of these improvements we refer to in this article are the new image and video formats.

Quit intrigues, what's the news?

Well, the novelty we allude to is the new formats of both image and video . It should be noted, first of all, that these formats will only be compatible with devices with iOS 11 and with an A9 or higher chip .

What do these formats bring back?

The main feature that bring us the new formats are storage efficiency is concerned; That is, the images or videos that we capture with the camera of our iPhone will be compressed in such a way that they will occupy up to 50% less space without losing practically any quality.
Up to 50% compression of the occupied storage

What formats are they?

These new formats are called HEIF (High Efficiency Image File Format) and HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding). The first as we can observe refers to the compression of images and the second to the compression of video.

What does Apple intend with the inclusion of these new formats?

On the one hand, of course, the survival of their latest devices 16 Gb that have a chip A9 or higher, that is, iPhone 6S / 6S Plus or IPhone SE, since with these new formats the capture of images and videos Will be more efficient, therefore, will occupy less space and will remove some headache when managing the storage of our device. 
On the other hand , Apple has always been a company that implements promising technologies in the future, and this is one of them. The society that passes each day is more equipped with mobile devices, which means that more and more images and videos are being shared, a fact that entails their respective consumption of mobile data. Apple intends that such spending be limited, Since the weight of each file will be lower. 
In a final section , Apple ensures with this the ability to improve its camera and establish technologies that imply with it an increase of the quality of image without giving up the good management of the storage nor to stay without this soon that we make a pair Videos and a couple of hundred photos.

And if I'm not interested in these formats, can I change them?

In effect, you can freely dispose of them from the Adjustments. You must go to the Photos and Camera section and, there, you will be presented with a section where you can specify in which format you want to save your captures, whether in the new ones or in the traditional ones.
Finally say that if by chance we are testing the beta 1 of iOS 11, we will not be able to share photos made under these formats to devices with iOS 10 or lower , focusing on the devices of the apple, since we do not know if any terminal with Android Has these technologies.
