For existing pictures if you re-save in gallery they'll be jpeg, because even their own gallery can't save the things.

The camera only uses 8-bit HEIC anyway which eliminates the only *real* benefit of the format (even with 10-bit it has too many downsides to be useful) since the moderate compression improvement doesn't matter with the amount of storage available on modern phones even after microsdxc was removed from most of them.

Oh, do any edit to it (just adjust brightness by 1 in either direction if you don't want to change much, or crop like I usually have to anyway) and it'll save as a jpeg, at least on my phone. Seemingly only the camera is able to save as HEIC (another good sign that it isn't all that useful).

HEIF and AV1F are both solutions to space and bit depth problems that were already solved by JPEG2000 a good 20 years ago.
