Hello and welcome to Apple Support Communities Sjukes69,

I see that you have a question about HEIC files not coverting to JPEG after updating to iOS 11. I can understand your concern, and I'd be happy to help.

Let's have you take a look at this article that explains more about using these formats on Apple devices:

Using HEIF or HEVC media on Apple devices
Thank you for using Apple Support Communities.
Have a great day!

Hi


Thanks for your reply, having reading the article, the following confirms something is not working correctly


"When you share HEIF or HEVC media using other methods, such as AirDrop, Messages, or email, it's shared in a more compatible format, such as JPEG or H.264."


When i share the image via the mail app, it is nopt being shared in the compatible format, it is still being attached as a HEIC file and therefore the recipient cannot view the file


Thanks


Simon
