    High Sierra and iOS 11 introduced H.265 video format where the size of the video is compressed to 1/10 without compromising the quality. I upgraded my Mac Book Pro 15 to High Sierra, is there a way in the settings, through which any video that i synchronized with my iPhone automatically converts the video into H.265 format?

    Per the article:

    "If you’re not using an iPhone 7 or later, or the latest generation of iPad Pro models, your devices won’t capture photos or videos using this new format. If you do have a new model, you can choose how to handle these formats via different settings in the Settings app. (And iOS 11 doesn’t dig back through your archive and re-encode your old files in these new formats.)"
