Taking pictures with your iPhone in JPEG format with iOS 11


If you have an iPhone 7, or a iPad Pro of 2017, you will have noticed that the iOS 11 update makes your device use the camera to capture pictures in HEIF format and videos in HEVC format.
This new high-efficiency format will replace the JPEG format hereafter , and is ideal for image compression. Therefore, your pictures will occupy much less space.
The HEIF format will default to compatible devices. Requires an A10 Fusion chip or later. So these are the terminals that will have this format:
  • iPhone 7
  • iPhone 7 Plus
  • iPhone 8
  • iPhone 8 Plus
  • iPhone X
  • 10.5-Inch iPad Pro
  • 12.9 Inch iPad Pro (Second Generation)

But you may want to change the image capture formats from HEIF / H.265 to JPEG / H.264. How to do it? We explain in a series of steps.

How to change the format of the camera to JPEG

1. Open the Settings app on your device.
2. Click on the "Camera" tab.
3. Select the "Formats" option.
Important: If your device does not have the minimum hardware requirements for image capture in HEIF format (an A10 Fusion or later), you will not see this menu.
4. Tap "More compatible".
This will cause the native Camera app on your iPhone or iPad to stop saving images in HEIF format and do so in the most universally compatible JPEG format .
All photographs, after setting the "most compatible" format, will be saved in the iOS 11 Photos application as a JPEG format. The videos you capture will also be in H.264 format.
Unfortunately, this functionality will not automatically change your existing images to JPEG. On the other hand, the iPhone 8, the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X with their specific modes transform the format JPEG to HEIF automatically (in slow motion, recording 4K to 60 FPS ...) to take pictures and videos.
