Apple iPhones now take photos in HEIC / HEIF.  They store EXIF metadata, but `exif_read_data` cannot read data.

On Linux, if I run the command line tool `exiftool test.heic` - then I'm able to see the metadata.

I can supply HEIC images if that would help.

I'm using PHP 7.1 and ImageMagick 6.9.4-10 (1684).

Test script:

Expected result:
Full EXIF readout

Actual result:

+1 this would be very welcome. IMHO heic is spreading especially on mobile devices and it could already be used in several more use cases if php would support it.
