Are you looking for a way to download your iPhone photos to your PC? Look no further!

In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the process step by step. By following these simple steps, you’ll have your precious memories safely stored on your computer in no time.

Step 1: Connect Your iPhone to Your PC

The first thing you need to do is connect your iPhone to your PC using a USB cable. Make sure to unlock your iPhone and trust the computer if prompted.

Step 2: Open the Photos App

Once the connection is established, open the Photos app on your PC. This app allows you to import and manage photos from your iOS devices.

Step 3: Select the Photos You Want to Download

In the Photos app, navigate to the “Import” or “Devices” tab, where you’ll see a list of available devices. Click on your iPhone’s name to access its photo library.

To select multiple photos at once, hold down the Ctrl key (or Cmd key on Mac) while clicking on each desired photo. Alternatively, you can click and drag a selection box around a group of photos.

Step 4: Choose the Destination Folder

Before proceeding with the import, choose a destination folder on your PC where you want to save the downloaded photos. You can either create a new folder or select an existing one.

Step 5: Start Importing

Once you’ve selected the desired photos and destination folder, click on the “Import Selected” or “Import All” button (depending on whether you selected individual photos or all of them). The Photos app will begin transferring the photos from your iPhone to your PC.

Step 6: Wait for the Transfer to Complete

The time it takes to transfer the photos will depend on the number of selected photos and their size. You can monitor the progress of the transfer in the Photos app.

Step 7: Review Your Imported Photos

Once the transfer is complete, you can open the destination folder on your PC to view and organize your imported photos. Congratulations, you have successfully downloaded your iPhone photos to your PC!


  • If you only want to import new photos that haven’t been previously downloaded, select the “Import New” option instead of “Import All.”
  • If you encounter any issues during the import process, make sure that your iPhone is unlocked and connected properly. You may also try restarting both your iPhone and PC.

Now that you know how to download iPhone photos to your PC, you can easily backup and access them whenever needed. Remember to regularly transfer your photos to keep them safe and free up space on your device.
