“How can I export iPhone HEIC photos to PC for a backup?”

What Is HEIC?
HEIC is the file extension of images compressed with HEIF (High Efficiency Image Format) standard, which stores still images and image sequences in HEVC encoded videos. Featuring higher compression, HEIC images are encoded in smaller size (half of JPEG) while delivering better quality for capturing a more extended color range to increase photo accuracy. Also, a HEIC file can be a container for multiple images making live photos easy and well.

iOS 11 & HEIC
Apple puts native support of HEIC on iOS 11 to save storage on iPhone/iPad/iCloud which will be taken up by photos; enhance image quality and edit photos easily. iOS 11 devices armed with A9 and new processors (iPhone 7 or newer; iPad Pro; iPad [2017] or newer) can accept HEIC.
