Apple introduced a new default photo format in iOS 11 called HEIC (High Efficiency Image Coding). If you are using any of the recent iPhone models starting from iPhone 7, you will most likely have some of your photos transferred in HEIC format.

To view your HEIC pictures on Windows, use CopyTrans HEIC for Windows – a simple plugin that allows you to open and view HEIC files with Windows Photo Viewer and Windows Explorer.
