How to transfer your iphone photos and videos

In this short tutorial we'll show you how to transfer your iphone photos and videos onto your computer - Windows PC or Apple Mac.


Ok so let’s get started. Now, apart from your mobile and your computer the only thing you’ll need to do this is a USB cord. That can go from your iphone to your computer.

Transfer iPhone Photos to Apple Mac

Plug your Apple device into your Mac with the USB cord. Now, open up the Photos Program on your Apple computer. If you haven’t synced your Mobile device with Photos yet you should be promoted to unlock your device in photos. You can do this by clicking on the "Trust this computer" message which will popup on your mobile device.

Once you’ve done this, you’ll see that your Apple mobile device will appear in the left-hand menu. When it does just click on it and it will open up all of the photos and videos on your IOS device. Then just navigate to the file or file you want to copy. Select them by pressing on them and then press the import button in the top right-hand corner. This will import the files onto your computer and save them into your photo library.

Once you’ve done this you will see the files that you’ve imported and if you want to access them quickly you can select them and drag them onto your desktop. Oh and you can also manage your photo sync preferences though the iTunes app too.
