iMazing Photos Section, Detail View

iMazing 2.11 is here, and it's a pretty special update. Our Mac users enjoy an awesome rebuild of our Photos section, and our Windows users get access to a handy solution to easily convert Apple's HEIC image format to JPEG or PNG.

The 2.11 update also introduces brand new tools for IT professionals, designed to help with local iOS device management. As always, the 2.11 update is free for all iMazing 2 license holders: you can update right now from within iMazing, or download and install afresh from our website.

Photos

Our new Photos section has been rebuilt from the ground up and introduces a brand new way of interacting with your iPhone photos. What if you could browse your phone's entire photo library from your computer? In high resolution, and with next to no loading time? Spoilers: Now you can, and it's pretty great – we've never been more proud of our work.

We're rolling out the Photos update in the macOS version of iMazing first, and ask our Windows users for a little a bit of patience as we work on bringing them the same experience this Summer.

HEIC Converter

Apple introduced the High Efficiency Image Format (.HEIC files) with iOS 11 and the iPhone X. It is truly efficient: .HEIC photos take up to 50% less storage space on your Apple mobile devices, with no noticeable impact on image quality. So, what's not to like? Well, more than two years have passed and the need to convert HEIC files to JPEG is still strong, especially on Windows.

For this reason, we've decided to include our popular iMazing HEIC Converter in iMazing. You can access it via the new Tools menu: iMazing Windows, HEIC Photos with Tools Menu Open

iMazing HEIC Converter is the safe and private way to convert your photos to JPEG or PNG. There are many online solutions out there which will ask you to upload images to their servers to perform the conversion, but they are slow and pose very serious privacy risks. Our converter on the other hand is super easy to use and runs purely locally, on your computer – no data is uploaded anywhere. Just drop your photos and hit Convert, in total peace of mind:

iMazing HEIC Converter, Ready to Convert

💡 By default, iMazing will convert HEIC photos you export from your iPhone or iPad, if needed. But now, you can also choose to export original HEIC files and convert at a later time. You can adjust iMazing's automatic conversion behaviour in the Preferences window, Photos tab.

Configuration

The 2.11 update also introduces a whole new set of mobile device management capabilities. These new features are aimed at system administrators and IT professionals. They greatly simplify quite a few common configuration workflows, and extend the possibilities of local iOS device configuration and provisioning.
