How to transfer photos from iPhone to a Windows PC

 You might think it's more difficult to transfer photos from iPhone to a Windows computer than to a Mac, and you'd technically be right. But that doesn't mean it's impossible — in fact far from it. How to transfer photos from iPhone to a Windows PC?

How to transfer photos from iPhone to a Windows PC


We've all seen the smug face Apple users pull when they seamlessly AirDrop files from their iPhone onto a nearby Mac or iPad. As an Apple user myself, believe me, I've pulled that face too. But while it's true that the Apple ecosystem works beautifully for quickly sharing things via AirDrop or AirPlay, that doesn't mean you need all Apple tech to simply get something off your iPhone. 

I own and use two Apple computers, so readily admit that M1 Macs and MacBooks are among the best computers and best laptops out there. But I also have three Windows PCs, one being the machine on which I do the bulk of my photo editing, so it's often helpful — nay, necessary — to be able to transfer large numbers of photos from my phone to my PC quickly. This is especially true given the Wi-Fi coverage in my house sucks, meaning uploading images to a cloud service is rarely viable. 

If you've ever been in a similar situation, you'll want to know how to transfer photos from iPhone to a Windows computer. Read on to find out how you do it.


How to transfer photos from iPhone to a Windows computer

1. Unlock your iPhone and connect it to your Windows PC using a cable. A popup on your iPhone screen will appear, asking you to allow the PC to access photos and videos. Tap Allow.

2. On your PC, a notification popup will appear in the bottom right of the screen. Click the popup.

3. A menu will appear in the top right of your screen, asking you to choose what to do with the device. Click Import photos and videos.

4. The Photos app will open, with an Import items window. Select the images you want to import from your iPhone's Camera Roll by clicking on each image's tile until it is highlighted blue and features a blue tick in the top right corner. Change the import destination to where you want to save the images on your PC. Then click the Import button.

Alternatively, click the Select dropdown and choose a predefined set of photos to import, such as all photos since the last import, or the entire photos library.

5. Once the import is complete, click Ok on the popup.

5 Things You May Not Know About the M2 Chip

  If you've been following apple's world in recent weeks, you've definitely noticed the introduction of new laptops. Specifically, we've seen a completely redesigned MacBook Air and a new 13" MacBook Pro. Both of these machines hide in the bowels of the currently latest Apple Silicon chip with the designation M2. It is a direct successor to the original M1 chip, and in this article, we are going to talk about 5 things about it that you may not have known.

About 55 years ago, Moore's Law was even created on the subject of transistors. Specifically, it states that " the number of transistors that can be placed on an integrated circuit doubles roughly every 18 months while maintaining the same price."  In any case, the truth is that recently this law is no longer valid, as increasing the number of transistors on chips is be

The 7 worst iPhone apps for your privacy

 Apple has written data protection in big letters on its flags. Every operating system tries to protect your data as best as possible, but some apps circumvent this in a tricky way. We would like to introduce you to some "bad" apps.
