High Efficiency Image Codec (HEIC) is a variant of HEIF that Apple adopted in 2017 when iOS 11 was introduced. The main advantage of HEIC is that it requires less space than JPEG (JPG) with no diminishment of image quality. Both HEIC and HEIF are based on High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC).
HEIC opens by default on Apple iOS and related applications and operating systems, such as macOS, iOS 11, macOS High Sierra, Apple Photos, and Apple Preview. Android OS also supports HEIC. On Microsoft Windows, open HEIC with Zoner Photo Studio.
The best alternative program for opening HEIC is XnView MP, which works across platforms.
