Re: HEIF is a container

Given his blind allegiance to Apple, he mistakenly had to find blame elsewhere. However, Apple never intended the HEIC format to be used beyond its proprietary design for use with their phones, or edited as you would a TIF. Certainly HEIC seems like a potentially great format, but Apple would have to help bring it along beyond its proprietary status... and that just isn't in its elitist corporate DNA.

Apple did not develop the standard container. It started as an ISO base media format in 2001 and was developed by the MPEG group in 2015. There is a Wikipedia page to read up on it.

Apple adopted HEIF in 2017 with iOS 11 solely using the HEIC format of the container.
