HEIC image support

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
Many devices, specifically Apple and Samsung devices support and default to taking images in the HEIC file format. Anytype’s Android and desktop clients don’t support displaying HEIC images, however. Considering that this is a fairly common file format, not supporting it may cause confusion and inconvenience for the user.

Describe the solution you’d like
I’d appreciate HEIC image support be added in both the desktop client and the Android app.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered
Downloading the image to display it is possible, but displaying it inline is more convinent and elegant.

Additional context
Clicking on “Open as object” does correctly indicate that the file is of type Image, but the image does not display.

HEIC images only display the filename in the object canvas.

It will also be nice to have support on iOS/iPadOS and Mac because of default image format.

I think, the workaround is the automatic conversion of images by Anytype to jpeg (only on iPad). But it doesn’t work on Mac.
