How to transfer photos from iPhone to Windows PC

In this mini-guide we will see how to transfer photos from iPhone to Windows PC. We will illustrate various methods, it will be up to you to choose the one you prefer!

Apple’s new smartphones like iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro can take high-resolution photos that consume a lot of space. And then you know how it is: to get to a decent photo, you have to take at least 10. This leads to rapidly increase memory consumption on iPhones that can become a big problem especially on devices with 64 or 128GB of memory. The only way to not lose our memories and make room is transfer photos from iPhone to PC and then delete them from phone. So let’s see some methods that can be used to do this!

ICloud Synchronization | How to transfer photos from iPhone to PC

iCloud is a service that allows you to save our photos on a server to be able to synchronize them on different devices. Let’s see how to activate this service to transfer photos from iPhone to Windows PC:

  • Let’s go to Settings> Photos> iCloud Photos (or iCloud Photo Library). Now the photos will be synced to iCloud through the first available Wi-Fi network.
  • We download and install iCloud for Windows on the PC. We log in using our Apple ID.
  • We select Photos> Download new photos and videos to my PC (we can select the destination folder at this point)> Done> Apply.
  • The last step is crucial, otherwise the photos will stay in sync only on iCloud. This means that if we delete a photo on iPhone, it will disappear on iCloud as well. Instead now thereand photos will be automatically saved on our PC after being loaded. They will be available in the path indicated in the configuration phase, in the Downloads folder.

    File Explorer | How to transfer photos from iPhone to PC

    File Explorer is the Windows file manager that allows you to move, organize, copy and delete files and folders. We can use it to copy photos from our iPhone, even if it will be a bit more cumbersome:

  • Connect iPhone to PC> Open this PC on desktop to launch File Explorer or press Windows key + E on your keyboard.
  • Find Your iPhone will appear in the Portable Devices sections.
  • Double-click your iPhone icon to open your iPhone> Locate the Internal Storage icon> Double-click to open it.
  • Look for the DCIM folder which is the Camera Roll folder> Double click on open it> Open a folder to see if it contains the photos you want to transfer.
  • Select the photos concerned and copy them> Paste them in the desired folder on your PC.
  • Surely the process is longer and must be repeated periodically to have an updated backup.

  • Connect your iPhone to the computer with a USB cable. On AnyTrans go to Device Manager> Click Photos.
  • Select the album with the photos you want to transfer to your PC, such as “My Photos” (including Places, People and more), “Albums”, “Recently Deleted” or anything else> Click the AL button PC.
  • Select the format of the photos you want to save them with and their destination. All photos exported from iPhone will be saved on your computer in the selected folder. And we will find that all photos are organized in folders like Live Photos, Camera Roll, Panoramas, just like in the source device.
