Hi folks,

What method/software can you recommend for moving files (photos/videos) from an iPhone (6) onto a laptop (running Windows 10)?

Is there any good and reliable (spam-free) software for this? And do you plug in the phone somehow?

Thanks! D

iTunes and a USB to lightning cable.

Personally I use dropbox because I can't stand how bloated itunes is. Dropbox let's you push everything from your phone into your dropbox account and you can download to your computer from there. The only issue is that you may need a paid account depending on how much storage you need.

All you need you already have. You don't need iTunes to transfer pictures and videos. Use the charging cable to connect the phone to your laptop via the USB port. Open Windows (File) Explorer and you should see the iPhone listed on the left side. You will need to, via the phone, grant permission for the computer to access the files on the phone.

Thanks kenrivers

So the power/charging cable on the iPhone can connect into the computer's USB? Is this a special charging cable or? For some reason I thought only Android phones could connect directly like this.

Yes, the power/charging cable for the iPhone can be used to connect the iPhone directly to the computer without the use of any additional software. The one I have is the power/charging cable that came with the phone.
