iOS 11's new image format might pose problems for PC users

Apple has switched from the ancient JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) format to the new HEIF (high-efficiency image format) in iOS 11. To capture it and hardware encode/decode HEIF, you'll need a recent device though — A10 Fusion-powered or later, which means iPhone 7 and iPad Pro (2nd Gen) at the least.

Here’s why HEIC files are great:
Around half the size of JPG for the same quality
Can store multiple photos in one file (ideal for Live Photos and bursts)
Supports transparency like GIF files
Can store image edits, such as cropping and rotating so you can undo them
Support 16-bit color vs JPG’s 8-bit

Convert Heic Photos to JPEGs
