How to import photos from iPhone to PC


If you are an iPhone user, then knowing how to save storage space by transferring data to your laptop or PC is important as the iPhone doesn’t have the system of an SD card. Instead, it has iCloud services, but we are only provided with 5GB of free space on iCloud. The usage of our smartphones has increased, and so has the data. With only sizable internal memory, there are high chances of storage capacity being full. So, it is better to transfer images and videos to a PC, as these take up too much storage space. Plus, if you use different tools and software for photo editing, then using a laptop will be more convenient, and if you have images stored on laptops or PCs, then it would be very easy for you to use instead of sending photos each time you use this software.

There are several methods for importing images from an iPhone to a PC. If you’re using a USB cord, make sure you’re using the proper and undamaged USB cable for your device. Before you start the transfer, update the software on both your phone and your laptop.
