Google aware of free original quality HEIC photo backups for iPhones, says it’s a ‘bug’

After the Pixel 4’s announcement, we were surprised to discover it didn’t offer free original quality backups on Google Photos like its predecessors. The next day, a Redditor made things even worse for Pixel users by explaining that the new iPhones do get unlimited original quality backups on Photos because they use the HEIC format. We’ve reached out to Google and got confirmation that this is indeed the case, but it’s a “bug” that’ll be fixed. Read More

Google released the final version of Android 10 for all four Pixel generations just a couple of days ago, but it looks like the software upgrade is hardly the smooth experience Pixel users had hoped for.
