what the heck is .heic format?

twice now I have received what is either an image or a video with a .heic .

I know it's an Apple thing. Do I have to use a converter to look at it?

thank you computer wizards.

2. High Efficiency Image Coding.

It's the photo format used by newer iPhones instead of .jpg. If it won't open automatically, you can download apps that will open a .heic photo and convert it to .jpg.
