Changing your photo default settings from HEIC to most compatible. Settings > Camera > Formats. Set it to Most Compatible to favor .jpg files. Set it to High Efficiency to favor .heic files. .heic is a new file format for images that is much better in every way than the old .jpg format: it’s smaller, and produces better compression with fewer artifacts. The only reason you might not want to use it is that it hasn’t been implemented by every single service yet, so some places don’t like it and when you find such a place and want to upload a photo there, you’ll have to convert the .heic to a .jpg before you upload.
