Apple and iOS 11 could revolutionize smartphone photography with a next-generation image file format

At this year’s WWDC, Apple introduced that it’s adopting two new standards-based formats for storing and processing images and video, called HEIF (High Efficiency Image File Format) and HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) respectively. Although the implications of both for the future iOS cannot be understated and merit their own research, today we will be focusing on the HEIF standard, which by the way is pronounced “Heef,” according to Apple, because we all know how obsessed people can be over the pronunciations of different file extensions (*cough* GIF *cough*).
