Google is no longer allowing access to providing free unlimited original quality image backup with the pixel 4 series. Pixel 4 users will be able to get free backups formulated in top-notch quality when it comes to Google Photos. It is applicable in the same way as other phones.
Coming to the latest mobile tech news, a Reddit user has revealed iPhone users might not have the accessibility. What we mean, Pixel 4 users will have to pay for saving photos in Original quality. iPhone users, on the other hand, can get Google photos for free by just sticking to the default format. Speaking of that, iPhone users should not even pay Google for original quality backups.
This is because all the pictures clicked on iPhone in HEIC/HEIF format gets uploaded on Google photos in original quality itself. So, if iPhone users opt for free Google photos for the storage option, the images remain the same. There is no difference in the quality of Google photos in the iOS application.
The reason behind this is that HEIC/HEIF format images are compressed, making it larger. Thus, saving high-quality images for free is possible instead of original paid quality on Google photos iOS application. It would mean extra storage cost for Google.
The Reddit users for explains, “…it would cost Google both storage space. It is because if Google tried in compressing iPhone HEIC photos, they will become larger. And the second is computing power. This is because Google will not have to compress and process the billions of photos for iPhone backup.
So basically, Apple is saving Google literally millions of dollars by shooting their pictures in HEIC. It further benefits the iPhone users because they tend to acquire free original quality backups.

The interesting fact about this is that you will have no option for HEIC/HEIF in the latest mobile, Pixel Phone. Also, even Android phones do not have this. Though, we can expect HEIC gaining more prominence in Android Phones. The reason behind this could be due to the launch of Android 10 operating system. It is actually supporting this format that has been already implemented in the iPhone for a long time now.
